each meatball with your thumb.

more meat if needed. Make sure cheese is safely tucked away so that it doesn’t ooze out of the burger when grilling.
- Carefully flatten cream cheese filled meatballs with hand, shaping into slider sized patties.
- Grill slider patties to desired temperature, adding sliced cheddar cheese on the top of each patty just before they are done cooking. Let cheese melt.
- Toast Hawaiian rolls over indirect heat if desired.
