  • 1
    Place ground beef, bread crumbs, egg, water, Parmesan cheese, and salt in pepper into a large bowl. Using your hands mix together the meatball mixture until it fully comes together.
  • 2
    Roll the meatball mixture into 16 meatballs, about golf ball size.
  • 3
    Flatten out the meatball a little and place a cube of Havarti cheese in the middle. Form a new meatball around the cube of Havarti. Do your best to make sure there are no holes (some cheese will ooze out regardless of how well you do this step).
  • 4
    Place them on a greased baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes at 350ºF.
  • 5
    Once baked and cooled enough to touch, place the meatball into a piece of flat crescent roll dough.
  • 6
    Wrap the crescent roll around the cooked meatball completely. Turn oven up to 375ºF and bake for another 10-12 minutes until the wrapped meatballs are golden brown.
  • 7
    Place the warm wrapped meatballs onto a plate of marinara sauce. Serve warm.
