    Meanwhile, separate each biscuit into 2 layers to make 16 dough rounds. Place 1 spinach leaf and 1 meatball on each round. Wrap dough around meatball, and pinch dough to seal. On lightly greased cookie sheet, place about 2 inches apart.

Expert Tips

  • To prevent meatball mixture from sticking to your hands, wet hands lightly with cold water before shaping balls.
  • Did you forget the shallot? No problem--1 1/2 teaspoons grated garlic and 1 1/2 teaspoons grated onion can be substituted for the 1 tablespoon grated shallot in this recipe.
