Meatball Sub Cupcakes


  •   1 can refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
  •   4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  •   3/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  •   1 cup shredded mozzarella
  •   12 (1oz) Italian style frozen meatballs
  •   1-1/4 cups marinara


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Spray 12 regular size muffin cups with cooking spray. Set aside.

  2. Remove dough from can; press seams to seal and press into an 8 x 13 inch rectangle. Cut dough into 12 squares. Press squares into muffin pan cups.

  3. Combine cream cheese, Italian seasoning and 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese. Divide the cream cheese mixture in the bottom of each muffin cup. Place meatballs on top of cheese; top each meatball with 2 tablespoons marinara. Sprinkle with remaining mozzarella cheese.

  4. Bake 15 to 18 minutes, or until golden brown.

Cook's Tip: There is no need to precook or thaw the frozen meatballs before baking. They will cook along with the crescent rolls.
