Smokey Mesquite BBQ Meatball Sliders

Smokey Mesquite BBQ Meatball Sliders

Today I’m really excited to share a new partnership with Kraft Foods. Creating recipes for my family is something I love to do but it actually becomes fun when it comes with a challenge. This month I was given the task of turning a Kraft Fresh Take variety into a new and delicious recipe for my family to enjoy.

As someone who loves to experiment in the kitchen this was an easy challenge for me. There’s a lot you can do with a smokey mesquite BBQ flavor, especially with chicken, but what about ground beef? When I think of easy lunch sandwiches I think of sliders. They’re versatile sandwiches that are made in a kid-friendly size but with gourmet flavors adults will love too.
