Preheat oven to 400ºF. Cook focaccia according to package instructions.
Meanwhile, heat a skillet on medium-high. Add oil and meatballs, and cook until brown on all sides.
Reduce heat to medium-low and add sauce. Cover and simmer 5 minutes.
Once bread is done, allow to cool a few minutes while meatballs finish cooking.
Set a loaf of focaccia on a flat service, place one hand on top to hold in place and cut in half horizontally. Keeping the 2 halves on top of each other, cut 8 equal size slider buns.
Repeat with second loaf, but only use half the loaf to cut 4 equal size slider buns (save extra half loaf for another use).
Place slider bottoms cut side up on a baking sheet with edges touching. Sprinkle with cheese and return to oven just long enough to melt cheese, about 5 minutes.
To assemble sliders, place 1 meatball on top of melted cheese on each slider bottom, then add a little more sauce, a basil leaf and top half of slider bun cut side down. Serve immediately with remaining sauce.
Chef's Note: The remaining Rosemary Focaccia can be used to make amazing avocado toast. These sliders can also be made with H-E-B Fully Cooked Meatballs.
