Dine In: Meatball Sub Bites


Meatball Sub BitesIt’s Christmas party season, and I have two to go to this weekend!

I love good holiday party food. I mean….a good holiday PARTY. Family, friends, food. Did I mention the food? I love the food.

Party food is just fun, and I love gatherings where guests bring their favorite dish. There’s never a shortage of delicious and varied treats.

I also just love a good party atmosphere, too. Laughing, talking, mingling and reconnecting with family and friends make the season bright for me.

I try to make something different when it’s up to me to bring a dish to share. I’m going to bring these Meatball Sub Bites to a party this Friday night. I have a little extra time on Fridays to bake these, as the workday ends a few hours early on Fridays. I’ll probably triple the recipe, too.

Meatball Sub Bites

Ingredients:
1 can refrigerated crescent roll dough
4 oz cream cheese, room temperature
3/4 tsp Italian seasoning
1 cup mozzarella, shredded
12 frozen meatballs
1 1/4 cup marinara sauce

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375° F. Spray a muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray or line with cupcake liners.

Roll crescent roll dough into a rectangle; press seams together. Cut dough into 12 squares, and press each square into muffin pan.

Mix cream cheese with Italian seasoning and 1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese. Place a heaping spoonful of the cheese mixture on top of dough in each muffin cup. Top with a meatball. Drizzle with desired amount of marinara sauce. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese. Bake 15 to 18 minutes or until golden-brown.
