Kraft Fresh Take Smokey Mesquite BBQ Recipe Ingredients

Inside the Kraft Fresh take bag you’ll find a blend of cheese, seasoned breadcrumbs and spices to make a flavorful meatball. You can toss all of the ingredients inside the convenient bag. I just added the meat and used my hands to combine all of the ingredients until they’re evenly distributed throughout the ground beef.

One pound of ground beef along with the Kraft Fresh Take makes a perfect dozen meatballs. I just rolled them by hand to about 1-1/2 to 2 inches in diameter. Try to make them all the same size

Next the meatballs get spaced out and lined up on a baking sheet (with a lip). Since there is cheese in the meatball you’ll want to make sure to bake them on parchment or Silpat (my preference) lined sheet. Thirty minutes in the oven @ 375  is all it takes to have them ready!

Once the meatballs are out of the oven you can set them up on the rolls and brush some of the bbq sauce over each one.

Add some sharp cheddar to the top for some extra flavor.

Fried bacon bits give these sliders the perfect crunch.

And for some added sweetness, chunky grilled onions put these sliders over the top.
