Take your finger food to the next level with these Jasmine Rice & Quinoa Meatball Sliders. Perfect for entertaining, make them for a family gathering or a fun weeknight meal with the kids.
Bring 1 cup of water to a boil in a small saucepan. Add the bouillon cube and stir to dissolve. Stir in the Rice and Quinoa blend. Reduce heat to low and cover. Simmer for 15 minutes.
Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat a large baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.
In a large bowl, mix together all ingredients except the marinara sauce, cheese and parsley. Form into walnut-sized balls and arrange on the baking dish.
Roast in the oven for approximately 20 minutes or until cooked through and golden brown.
Spoon the marinara sauce on top, then sprinkle with the cheese; bake for an additional 5 minutes or until sauce is hot and cheese is melted. Remove from oven and sprinkle with parsley.
Make sliders by slicing a dinner roll in half and placing a meatball on top, sprinkle with fresh parmesan cheese for extra flavor.
