Ingredients:

12 Rhodes Cracked Wheat Rolls, thawed
turkey meatballs, recipe below
marinara sauce, store bought or homemade
mozzarella cheese
butter

Meatballs:
2 pounds ground turkey
1 cup Italian bread crumbs
3 egg whites
3 tablespoons water
3 tablespoons dry minced onions
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper


Instructions:

Make meatballs following the instructions below. 

Combine two of the thawed Cracked Wheat Rolls by kneading together lightly. Pinch together at the bottom and form into a small loaf shape. Let rise for 45 minutes to an hour, or until doubled in size. Bake at 350 degrees F until golden brown.

Slice each mini roll loaf in half. Spread butter on both the top and bottom. Place 2 or 3 meatballs on each bottom piece. Spoon marinara over the meatballs and add a slice of mozzarella to each. Place both the meatball filled bottom and the top, butter side up, on a baking sheet.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 5-8 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bread edges are golden brown. 

Meatballs:
Combine all of the ingredients thoroughly. Roll into 2 inch balls (makes about 24). Place on baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees F for 25 minutes. Turn meatballs halfway through baking time.
