I started a new thing a couple of weeks ago. I'm working outside of the home for the first time in a few years. It was time that I do something during the hours that I don't have to work on my blog. As of yesterday – I took a part-time job at a bank. I love it.

But you know what? Even though I am working, I still have to get dinner on the table right? So I am always on the lookout for quick and easy dinner meals I can make. — That is how I came up with this one for 20-minute meatball sliders.

Of course, this recipe would not be possible to make in 20 minutes without the help of Carando Meatballs that I picked up at Food Lion.

The Best Meatballs

I am a huge meatball lover and I normally make them homemade. I just happen to really love the look and feel and taste of a homemade meatball. Making homemade meatballs takes a while to do. You have to put them together then let them harden a bit, then fry them in a pan, then cook them in the sauce.

I don’t typically purchase frozen foods, but when I need something quick, it’s a great option- like the Carando brand at Food Lion. These meatballs are so close to the homemade taste, and literally, only take 20 minutes to make.

Carando’s passionate story begins nearly a century ago along the cobblestone streets of Torino, Italy, where founder Peter Carando learned the Italian tradition of sausage-making as an apprentice at his local butcher shop.

With authentic recipes in hand, he set sail for America to begin handcrafting the finest Italian meats this country had ever tasted. To this day, Carando has remained true to those recipes – and to the old-world craftsmanship that has helped Carando earn its place as one the world's finest purveyors of Italian deli meats.
