Daily Recipe - Quickie Meatball Bites

by Divine Domesticity on  March 4th, 2008

I know I'm not the only person to take advantage of the bag o' meatballs sold at the big, evil box stores. I use them for a lot of things: meatball subs, Italian wedding soup, Hungarian meatball stew. After awhile though, I can't stand the sight of another meatball! Get them OUT OF THE FREEZER! ACK!

This recipe will help you do that.

Quickie Meatball Bites
Makes 3-4 Servings

Several sheets of phyllo dough, thawed
9-12 Meatballs (I used a nice quality pre-made meatball, already cooked)
Mozzarella cheese, shredded
Parmesan cheese, shredded or grated
Marinara sauce or premade pizza sauce
Chopped parsley for garnish (I used dried)

1. Preheat oven to 350-f degrees. Cut squares of phyllo according to size of pan you are using -- for a mini pan I cut about a 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" square. Using 3 sheets of cut phyllo, form to pan. Bake for 3-4 minutes, until edges lightly brown.

2. Add marinara, mozzarella cheese to phyllo cups. Add warm meatballs, cutting in half when necessary to fit. Top with Parmesan cheese and chopped parsley. Serve and enjoy!

I am SO glad I found your blog again, gee whiz.

You are an incredible cook!!!!!

I can't make a darn thing for my family that you create so far (everyone is picky---maybe my kids would eat it but my hubby won't!!!), but it is like porn! Ha ha! I adore food to the extreme.

You make it look fabulous too. You know what? You should have your own cooking show and call it the name of your blog! People would dig it, I kid you not!

I would faithfully watch you every day. :)
