Karin is the food writer for the Augusta Chronicle and she shares quick and easy recipes like this quite unusual take on meatballs. Here frozen meatballs are combined with traditional ingredients to make a a cheese-steak sandwich. Using frozen fully cooked meatballs cuts the work involved, and using light Cheez Whiz cuts the fat. You can save even more time by using 2 cups of frozen pepper stir-fry blend in place of the fresh bell pepper and onion.
A yummy, fast meal to put together, this cooks on its own in the crock pot. Serve over hot cooked noodles. You can substitute a package of frozen broccoli, cauliflower and red pepper for the vegetables specified, if desired. Recipe from BH&G.
I got this out of a Pillsbury Cookoff cookbook. You know, the little ones in the checkout lines?Anyway, I made for the inlaws for a firewood cutting day and they just loved them!!!The original recipe called for frozen storebought meatballs, but I don't do that so I just said to use your favorite meatball recipe. These are really good and really easy!You could top them with additional mozzarella cheese if you wanted. You could also serve them with additional sauce to dip them in if you wanted.
These little biscuits have meatballs and cheese inside. Dip them in marinara sauce for a yummy snack. They would even be great as a side with soup. The layer type biscuits work best for this appetizer. I found this recipe in a Pillsbury cookbook. *****UPDATE*****Since posting, I have begun using my own homemade meatballs for this recipe (usually prepared the day before and refrigerated until needed). I had purchased a bag of ready-made meatballs that weren't the best quality and was really unhappy with the results for the appetizer. Just thought I would pass on the info...
The spread on these meatball sandwiches is what really sets them apart from others. You can experiment and customize by using your favorite meatballs, sauces and fresh bread. Good for a party finger food, or for lunch or dinner. I promise no meatball sandwich will be the same again! Cook time includes entire process.
An online friend gave me the original recipe...and taught me how to pronounce it! I tweaked it to my Texas tastes and it ended up a mighty scrumptious meal. I like to serve it with garlic toast, a nice, crisp green salad and a big glass of iced sweet tea.
This is a great recipe for cold days when you crave something warm and delicious. It makes a ton but both the sauce and the pasta freeze well. I am a "dump cook" and don't have exact measures for my sauce recipe - the recipe below is my estimation of what I would use. My family loves it when I make this and the smell of the sauce simmering all afternoon is wonderful!!
