It can be a challenge to keep my meals fun and kid friendly. And I don’t make all our meals “fun” but I know how much my kids enjoy things like food on a stick or finger foods, so on occasion, I try hard to make the meal more exciting for them.
This is one of those meals.
Meatball Subs – on a stick
First, you need a super helper. Get that super helper to put three meatballs on a stick. (These were the precooked frozen ones and I just heated them in the skillet so they got a little browned, by the time we started, they were barely warm so they weren’t hot to handle.)
Next take a package of croissants and use 1/2 of a croissant triangle (just ripped in half down the long side so I had two long dough ribbons) to wrap around the balls.
Then bake in a preheated oven (350°). I did them for about 15 mins. Just until they are golden and the meatballs are heated up.
Then serve with some warmed marinara mixed with a few tablespoons of grated parmesan cheese.
I thought about doing some mozzarella tucked into the dough before I wrapped them, but it didn’t seem like it would work well with the amount of dough I was using.
The kids loved this fun take on meatball subs and ate them right up!
