    creepy ...

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 (12 ounce) can Pillsbury Golden Layers refrigerated flaky original biscuits
    • 20 frozen cooked meatballs
    • 1/4 cup shoestring potatoes (from a can) or 1/4 cup chow mein noodles
    • sliced olive, as desired
    • sliced pickle, as desired
    • sliced carrot, as desired
    • ketchup
    • mustard


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 375°F Spray a large baking sheet with cooking spray.
    2. 2
      Separate the dough into 10 biscuits. Separate each biscuit into 2 layers.
    3. 3
      Wrap each meatball with a layer of dough to make a ball, pinching the edges to seal. (place the pinched edges on the bottom.).
    4. 4
      To make a creepy crawler, line up 10 dough covered meatballs in a squiggle pattern. Poke the shoestring potatoes (I used the chow mein noodles) in both sides of each ball to make the legs, and two poked into the top of the "head" for antennae.
    5. 5
      Bake 13 to 16 minutes or until golden brown.
    6. 6
      Make a face out of olive slices.
    7. 7
      Place olive slices, pickle slices, carrot slices, or whatever at random points along the creepy crawler for interest.
    8. 8
      Serve the creepy crawlers with ketchup, mustard, or whatever you might like.

      This was so much fun! I used homemade meatballs, and subbed in red onions for the legs because I didn't have chow mein noodles on hand. It turned out adorable, and tasted delicious!

      I made this for Hallowe'en and the kids loved it. I used homemade, precooked meatballs instead of storebought, so I adjusted the baking time to make up for the fact that the meatballs weren't frozen. Very cute, the kids said it tasted kind of like hamburgers with the ketchup and mustard to dip them in. Thanks for sharing!

      This was really fun and cute. Easy and good too! I used the honey flaky biscuits and gave it a yummy sweetness to it! This would be fun for birthdays too!
