It’s still football season, but it’s getting colder so tailgating is moving indoors. This is the perfect appetizer when you want cookout vibes but don’t want to stand over a grill in the cold. It also comes together in 5 minutes – literally.
Prep your ingredients so you can assemble quickly. I stacked 5 Kraft singles and sliced them into quarters. I also got out some fresh baby spinach. This is the best lettuce to use because it’s pre-washed, one piece is ideal, and it skewers easily without breaking. You’ll have plenty leftover but you’ll just make a salad later. You’ll also want to slice grape tomatoes in half. Cook some frozen meatballs in the microwave (only takes two minutes for the minis) and skewer them on a toothpick with a piece of cheese, spinach leaf, and tomato half. Serve with a ketchup and mayo sauce (using a funky ketchup like TJ’s truffle or Sur Kensington’s goes a long way here) and some pickles.
Everything you love about a cheeseburger in one perfect bite! Honestly these are easier AND cuter than sliders. Also, I know Kraft singles ain’t fancy but they feel like grilling season to me and melt soooo nicely over the meatballs.
