Print Recipe
Serves: 8 Cooking Time: 20 minutes


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 3/4 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 3/4 cup diced onion
  • 1/2 cup classic hummus
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons tandoori spice blend (such as Spiceologist Tandoori Glory see notes)
  • 2 tablespoons minced cilantro
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 8 mini bagels
  • Sabra Greek Yogurt Onion Dip (or other onion dip)



Prepare grill or coals in the barbecue.


In a medium bowl add the ingredients: ground beef through ground pepper and mix just until combined. Use a large hinged scoop, or a spoon and make meatballs about 2 1/2 inches in circumference. Place on a parchment lined plate and continue with remaining meat mixture.


Grill the meatballs for about 15 minutes or until no longer pink inside, turning every few minutes to cook on each side. Toast the bagel halves for 1 minute on the grill. Remove and assemble by placing a meatball on 8 of the bagels, spread a tablespoon of greek yogurt dip on the bagel top and press onto the meatballs. Use a toothpick to hold them in place (optional). Serve immediately.

    Okay, that big green egg has been on my wish list for a very long time. I’m the one to “man” the grill in our house and would love to use this baby all summer long. And those sliders…yeah, I need to make those!

    Sliders are usually flat and thin, not round as a meatball… or what makes these sliders according to you?
