I mean, come on…I love a good tailgating recipe like these Moroccan Meatball Sliders. Make sure you check out the end of the post for other tailgating ideas.Moroccan Meatball Sliders | farmgirlgourmet,com For my tailgating recipe, I decided to make a meatball slider and WHOA did they ever taste amazing.  The only thing heard at the table were the grunts from happy eaters.   Moroccan Meatball Sliders | farmgirlgourmet.com I mixed tandoori spices, hummus, and the usual meatball suspects.  Formed them into balls about the size of a small orange and grilled them to perfection.   Moroccan Meatball Sliders | farmgirlgourmet.com A little Sabra Greek Yogurt Diced Onion Dip on a toasted mini bagel and the crew will be screaming TOUCHDOWN!  They were incredibly delicious, easy and quick to make and a serious crowd pleaser.

Moroccan Meatball Sliders



Yield 8 servings

A super quick recipe for a Moroccan Meatball Slider that is so packed with flavor and a breeze to make.


  • 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)
  • 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)


  1. Prepare grill or coals in the barbecue.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

My younger brother has a Big Green Egg and swears by it. I’m jealous. LOL

Cookin Canuck November 25, 2014 - 1:03 pm

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?

Sabrina Parnell November 25, 2014 - 9:53 am

These sound wonderful

Jane Dailey November 25, 2014 - 9:07 am

Great recipe; hummus is a staple here. We always use Sabra. I am thinking turkey meatball sliders over the weekend!

Sally November 25, 2014 - 6:11 am

the sliders look so tasty and the Big Green Egg is beautiful!

EllynAnne November 24, 2014 - 4:14 pm

would never have thought of hummus as an additive – thanks ever so for developing this recipe!

Monica November 24, 2014 - 10:12 am

I love sliders…don’t love hamburgers. Weird, right? I happen to have some Sabra hummus in my fridge…these are on my to do list soon! Oh…and if I win this awesome thing you can come over and show me how to use it!
