You say what?! Garlic bread wrapped meatballs?! What kind of sorcery is this?
Well you’ve probably seen the recipe on Facebook. My mom tagged me in it and once I saw it I had to try it. I try every recipe once the way it’s written in the instructions, and then the second time (if there is a second time- sometimes my recipes fail to impress and we can’t find any way to make them better).
So I figured I’d try this one the way it said to the first time.
This is a pretty easy recipe and I suggest it for a side- unlike an entrée that we made it. Wasn’t filling enough… So I might have to make me and bubs some fried Eggplant later lol.
Here’s what you’ll need (full recipe at the end of the post): Shredded parmesan cheese, Grands flaky layer biscuits, oregano (or Italian seasoning like it calls for, but I didn’t have) Garlic powder or garlic salt, premade Italian style meatballs and string cheese.
Cut four pieces of string cheese into five smaller pieces. You’ll need 20 chunks of string cheese when you’re done.
It was REALLY hard for me not to put this bowl in the microwave and melt it and eat it with bread. REALLY hard.
Take your biscuits out and get them ready.
Get your meatballs ready.
Take your flaky layer biscuits and separate them into two separate layers. I suggest, actually, that you should buy two things of biscuits because no where have I found a package of biscuits that hold 10 biscuits. Only 8. So I don’t know what they were thinking when they came up with this recipe.
Take and place a piece of cheese in the middle of your stretched out biscuit.
Put a meatball in your biscuit pouch. Please excuse my chipped mani. I haven’t gotten the chance to redo my nails. Continue this until you have all your cheese pieces used up.
And there you have your little meat and cheese pouches.
Take your trusty garlic powder and sprinkle thusly….
Not really sure how much I used…. I just sprinkled… No measurements needed.
Do the same with the Oregano or Itallian seasoning….
If you do all this whilst using Julia Child’s accent, then you’re doing it right. Do everything whilst using Julia Child’s accent.
Take your parmesan cheese (don’t sniff it right now, cause it smells like butt) and sprinkle it over your rolly thingies.
This is when it starts smelling like pizza…… Bake for about 25 minutes….
And THIS is what you get. NUM YUMMY!!!!
Serve with marinara sauce and your favorite Italian accoutrements and you have a scrumptious dinner!!!
