Easy Meatball Poppers

1
tube Pillsbury Crescents Dough
16
appetizer-size Italian-style meatballs (precooked, and defrosted if frozen)
1
tbsp unsalted butter
fine
sea salt

Directions

  • 1 Preheat oven to 375. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  • 2 Unroll the Crescent dough on a baking sheet. Using a pizza cutter, cut the dough diagonally criss-crossing the perforations. Basically, you are cutting each pre-cut triangle in half.
  • 3 Working with one piece of dough at a time, roll each meatball up, completely covering the surface. Place on the prepared baking sheet in four rows of four.
  • 4 Melt the butter. Use a pastry brush to brush it on the tops of the meatballs. Sprinkle with fine sea salt (Kosher salt will be fine, if you don't have sea salt).
  • 5 Bake for 10 minutes. Turn the pan and bake for 2-3 more minutes until golden. Serve immediately.

The Bakeoff is Coming!


Tie on your aprons and get into the kitchen! It’s time to enter the totally fabulous Pillsbury Bake-Off Contest.

A friend sent me a note the other day, telling me that she’s entering the Pillsbury Bake-Off again this year. She has high hopes that this is going to be her year. My friend is one of many who will submit a special recipe to the contest, competing to be the lucky winner of $1 million.

Yes, the grand prize is One. Million. Dollars. (I can’t say, read or write that without hearing Dr. Evil from Austin Powers.)

The Pillsbury Bake-Off is an annual tradition, in its 45th year. Entrants are challenged to create an original recipe using at least two products from the designated list.

There are four categories to enter:

  • Breakfast & Brunches

  • Dinner Made Easy™

  • Entertaining Appetizers

  • Sweet Treats


The contest is open to people 18 and older, with just a few limitations (food pros, employees of the sponsors and spouses of former winners can’t enter). Unfortunately, I am not eligible to enter since I am a professional recipe developer, food writer and food blogger.

But if I could enter, I would be submitting something like this simple, delicious appetizer: Easy Meatball Poppers.

Meatball Poppers

The first time I made these babies, which are sort of like a pig in a blanket, minus the pig, my kids devoured almost the entire batch. The little appetizer-sized meatball, wrapped in Crescent dough and brushed with melted butter and sprinkled with salt is simple … but it’s also amazing. You won’t be able to eat just one.

Meatball Poppers

They take about 10 minutes to make and need to bake for less than 15 minutes. Which means that this party appetizer can go from just ingredients to serving platter in just about 30 minutes. 

I love a fast and easy dish, don’t you?
