-Meatball Sliders-

I absolutely love, love, love ,this recipe for meatballs...its my very own concoction of meat ,garlic ,cheese, and a few other things  ..  I usually do a huge pot of these, boil up some pasta and serve with a great marinara sauce but tonight.....considering we had a 5 course meal for Easter I thought I'd whip some up and serve them slider style...easy and simple right?  You bet!  Serve them as you wish! 
              1-1/2 pound of lean ground beef
  1-1/2 pound ground veal
   1-1/2 pound ground pork
                       1/2 cup of shredded Parmesan cheese
  1/2 cup of bread crumbs
      3-smashed cloves of garlic
Splash of milk
2 eggs
              1/4 cup chopped Italian Parsley
1 baguette loaf
       1-6oz pkg fresh mozzarella
1 pkg fresh basil

Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Slice the baguette loaf , next slice the mozzarella  & then Tear off basil leafs from the steams, set all three ingredients aside.  
  Place all remaining ingredients in the bowl of a standing mixer, or a regular bowl for mixing.   
Set mixer on low speed until all ingredients are combine, Or use your hands to mix..  
Then scoop meat mixture with a spoon or an ice cream scoop ,  roll in your hands to form meatballs.Place on a cookie sheet and bake for about 30 minutes. When done toast bread, place cheese then basil leaf and meat ball on top. Top with sauce of your choice and a little extra shredded Parmesan cheese....So pretty and yummy at the same time! These are great as an appetizer too..
