These Crescent Wrapped Meatballs are so quick and easy to make. Serve them as an appetizer, finger foods at your next party, or as a meal themselves.
 
Ingredients
  • 24 frozen packaged meatballs, thawed
  • 2 packages (8 oz each) refrigerated crescent roll dough
  • 1¼ cups grated Italian-blend cheese or mozzarella and provolone
  • marinara sauce for dipping
 
Instructions
  1. PREHEAT oven to 400 degrees.
  2. CUT meatballs in half. Unroll the crescent dough. Cut each crescent into 3 equal-size parts. Place a pinch of cheese over the dough. Place meatball half over cheese. Wrap dough around the meatball, pinching and positioning to completely cover.
  3. LAY wrapped meatballs on a large baking sheet and bake 10–12 minutes, or until dough is golden brown.
  4. SERVE with marinara sauce for dipping.
 

Quick and simple recipes like this one have become my go-to during our busy summer.

Tips:

  • Roll two crescent rolls out together as a rectangle and cut into 6 equal portions. It’s easier than trying to figure out how to split a triangle into thirds
  • Leave the meatballs whole and cut the rectangles into 3 equal portions for bigger servings. This is what I did since we enjoyed our Crescent Wrapped Meatballs as a meal instead of as an appetizer.
