Mini Italian Meatball Sliders
These little Italian meatball sliders are perfect for parties... especially the SUPER BOWL! Just add spicy whole grain mustard to toasted mini rolls then top with cheesy meatballs, roasted red and yellow peppers, and some capers. I used pre-made ingredients but if you made the meatballs and roasted the red peppers yourself, these little sandwiches could be even more impressive!
And yes, this recipe only makes 2 tiny sliders but you could easily increase the ingredients and make a large amount for a party or a dozen for a fun little appetizer. And if you're looking to make your party even more fun – Add customized tooth picks into each one or invite your friends over, ask them to bring a bunch of random ingredients and have a make your own sandwich party.

Monte Cristo + Brie Sliders
These sweet and savory little monte cristo sliders feature creamy brie, thinly sliced turkey and ham, tangy raspberry jam and crusty French bread. And instead of deep frying the entire sandwich, like some monte cristos are made, this sandwich is grilled on the stove with salted butter. These little sliders may not be the healthiest of options, but they're super tasty and little so you don't have to feel bad about eating them.Continue to 5 of 6 below.

Curried Meatball Sliders
Curried meatballs, cherry peppers, and thai basil come together between two buttery toasted slices of French bread on these flavorful little meatball sliders. For a variation of this recipe, try swapping out the red curry for yellow curry and add crushed peanuts, pickled bamboo shoots and a citrusy carrot slaw. You can also use a green curry base and a few more toppings like fresh bean sprouts, a few sprigs of mint and cilantro, and a squeeze of fresh lime juice.
This colorful spread is a perfect game day appetizer and can even be made into a fun DIY bar. Just set all the sides in cute little bolws and have the meatballs constantly simmering in small crock pots. It's easy, fun, and obviously – it tastes awesome!

Pickled Peach Grilled Cheese with Virginia Ham
These little slider grilled cheese sandwiches are packed with flavor and they make the perfect bite-size appetizers and party snack. Filled with a dollop of woodsy mulberry jam, some salty slices of Virginia ham, a couple of bright pickled peach segments, and nutty shreds of gouda and then grilled between two buttery sweet slices of Hawaiian bread, this sandwich packs quite the flavorful punch.
And the best part is that this sandwich is good all year round - whether you're making it in the middle of summer when peaches are perfectly in season or whether you're making it in the dead of winter, after your peaches have been pickling for a few months.
