These Cheesy Garlic Bread and Meatball Rolls are the perfect Game Day finger food! Hawaiian rolls are toasted in garlic butter, stuffed with cheese, tender meatballs, covered in more cheese and then baked until gooey and hot.

Cheesy Garlic Bread and Meatball Rolls

Much like the rest of the world,I have a mild obsession with turning those delicious little King’s Hawaiian rolls into something cheesy, bite-sized and party-worthy.

I’m pretty sure the trend started with these Ham and Cheese Sliders that took the internet by storm a few years ago, and now every blogger, party planner and cook seems to have their own version — myself included.

I try not to fall in to trends too often, but this one, was something I couldn’t ignore. My inaugural recipe started with these Cheesy Mexican Breakfast Sliders, which are pretty much the most delicious thing on the planet next to these Chopped Cheeseburger Sliders that may be be even more addictive than greasy White Castle burgers. Suffice it say, neither one of them are particularly healthy, and today’s Cheesy Garlic Bread Meatball Rolls are no exception.

I know we’re supposed to be focusing on healthy foods and all that, but I still believe in a little wiggle room when the week is over, so come Friday, all bets are off. Plus if you only have one, it doesn’t even count!

Knowing there’s a potential for a slew of playoff games to be in my future, had my brain running like a hamster wheel just spitting out ideas for game day-worthy appetizers. As I was running through the archives of the site, making sure I didn’t repeat any prior recipes, I stumbled upon these Meatball Subs and realized I had every intention of turning the full-size portion into a miniature version, but forgot about it months ago because I didn’t want to bombard you with yet another way to consume meatballs.

I happen to be a sucker for a big batch of spaghetti and meatballs, and almost an even bigger sucker for a meatball sandwich. There’s just something about the flavorful, spiced-studded meat paired with a robust sauce and a crusty roll that just makes me feel good, so it just made sense to turn the big kid version in to something a little bit more manageable for a party. Or tiny little toddler hands (omg I have a toddler!).
