Cheesy Meatball Bites


Made this recipe for kids, its so easy and delicious. Hmm, maybe i will make it if i dont have cooking idea for my kids, haha


    1 8-oz can Pillsbury Crescent rolls
    1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
    about ½ cup marinara sauce
    12 meatballs (I used pre-made, frozen ones)

       Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Spray a regular sized muffin pan with non-stick spray.
       Unroll crescent dough. Separate into 2 large sections along the perforated edge. Cut each of the 2 large sections into thirds, then divide those sections down the middle, so that you have 12 squares total. (See video- it's much easier shown!)
       Press each square into one of the muffin cups, doing your best to press down into the cup and somewhat up the edges.
       Spoon about 2 teaspoons of marinara sauce into the bottom of each cup. Follow with a small spoonful of mozzarella cheese. Place 1 meatball (they can be frozen still, no need to pre-thaw!) into the center of each cup. Spoon another 2 teaspoons of marinara sauce on top of the meatball, then finish with another sprinkling of mozzarella cheese.
       Bake for 15-17 minutes, until crescent dough is golden brown and cheese is bubbling. Remove from oven. Let cool a few minutes, then remove each meatball bite from the muffin pan. Serve with additional marinara sauce, if desired.
