Rhodes Mini Meatball Cups

Hi everyone! It's Tina from Mommy's Kitchen and I'm back sharing another tasty recipe using my favorite frozen bread dough. Who doesn't love a good meatball recipe? Meatballs are pretty popular in our house and I love using them as a starting point in so many recipes, especially for appetizers and snacks. These Mini Meatball Cups are so delicious and super simple to make. They're the perfect appetizer, snack or grab and go lunch. 

To make these easy meatball cups I used Rhodes Frozen Dinner Rolls, pre- cooked frozen meatballs, pizza sauce and Italian cheese. The best part about this recipe is you don't even have to let the dough rise. Just thaw, shape the cups, fill with meatballs, sauce and cheese, then bake.

My kids love these little meatball cups and they're also just as delicious reheated the next day. Another delicious flavor variation is Mini Barbecue Meatball Cups using, meatballs, barbecue sauce and cheddar-jack cheese. Let's get started!  

Mini Meatball Cups

You will need: 12 dinner rolls (thawed but still cold), 24 mini frozen pre-cooked meatballs, pizza or mainara sauce, shredded Italian cheese blend and parsley. 

Mini Meatball Cups

Thaw 12 Rhodes dinner rolls to room temperature on a baking sheet that has been spray with non-stick spray. You want the rolls thawed, but still cold. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 24 count mini muffin tray with non-stick baking spray.

Using kitchen shears, cut each dinner roll in half making 24 pieces. Flatten each dough piece into a circle and press into each mini muffin cup, pressing up the sides to form into a little cup. Continue with remaining dough pieces.

Sprinkle about 1/2 teaspoon shredded cheese into each dough cup. Place one mini meatball on top of cheese, lightly pressing the meatball down.
