1 pound ground beef

1 pound ground sausage

1/2 cup finely chopped onion

1/4 cup minced garlic

2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme

1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley, plus more for garnish

1 egg

1/2 cup grated Parmesan, plus more for garnish

1 cup panko breadcrumbs

12 ounces ricotta cheese

2 teaspoons kosher salt

Olive oil

4 cups red sauce, heated

Small potato buns (slider size), toasted


  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. 
  2. Mix the beef, sausage, onions, garlic, thyme, parsley, egg, Parmesan, breadcrumbs, ricotta and salt in a bowl together with your hands (like mixing play dough). Form 1 1/2-inch inch balls out of the meat mixture. Heat a large ovenproof skillet (preferably cast iron) with a bit of olive oil. Add the meatballs and brown on all sides, about 3 minutes. Place the skillet in the oven to finish cooking, 5 to 7 minutes. 
  3. Remove and toss with the red sauce. Place on the toasted slider buns and sprinkle with Parmesan and parsley.
