Meatball Bites

by Laura

Whether you are just hanging on a rainy Saturday afternoon or watching the big football game – this next recipe will be a hit. These meatball bites are  flavorful meatballs with cheese surrounded with a flaky crust. Add in some marinara sauce for dipping and you are set!

These babies will also be a great appetizer to serve when the holidays roll around, so hold on to this recipe for then too!

If you are in Utah, I have only found the biscuits used in this recipe at Walmart. I also love to use the frozen meatballs from Costco or Sam’s. Both are great for these meatball bites.
