If you like homemade BBQ meatballs for an appetizer or party snack, then you’ll love them as a slider sandwich for a meal! Easy to make and full of flavor.



Meat”ball” Sliders:

  • 1 pound roll of Odom’s Tennessee Pride Country Sausage (mild flavor)
  • 1 pound extra lean ground beef
  • 1 cup quick oats (must be quick cooking oats)
  • 1/2 cup finely diced onion
  • 1 egg
  • 2/3 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder

BBQ Sauce:

  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup chili sauce
  • 1/2 cup grape jelly
  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the ingredients for the meat”ball” sliders. Shape the meat mixture into 14-16 patties and place on a large baking sheet (or two medium baking sheets) greased with non-stick cooking spray. Bake the patties for 22 minutes at 350F until cooked through.
  3. While the patties are baking, prepare the BBQ sauce. In a medium sauce pan, combine the ingredients for the BBQ sauce, then cook over medium heat until the sauce begins to simmer. Cover with a lid and cook on low for 10 minutes.
  4. When the meat”ball” patties are finished baking, remove them from the baking sheet and arrange into a 9×13 inch glass baking dish (the patties can overlap). Spoon the BBQ sauce over the patties; be sure to completely coat each patty with the sauce.
  5. Bake the meat”ball” patties at 350F for 12 minutes.
  6. Serve hot with sliced sweet Hawaiian style rolls or brioche buns to make sliders.
