These muffins will surprise everyone! Great Italian taste, simple to make!

Prep Time: 20 min (not including thaw time)
Bake Time: 25 min
Servings: 12
Skills: Beginning


  1. 12 Rhodes Yeast Dinner Rolls, thawed to room temperature
    1/4 cup marinara sauce
    12 frozen cooked Italian style meatballs
    3 sticks mozzarella string cheese, cut in fourths
    2 tablespoons butter, melted
    2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
    1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
    extra marinara sauce, if desired


Spray counter lightly with non-stick cooking spray. Flatten each roll into a 5-inch circle. Place 1 teaspoon marinara sauce in the center of each circle. Top with 1 meatball and a piece of string cheese cut in half. Place a piece of cheese on two sides of the meatball. Pull dough up around filling to completely enclose and pinch to seal.

Place one seam side down in each cup of a sprayed 12 cup muffin tin. Brush each one with butter and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning.

Cover with sprayed plastic wrap and let rise 30-45 minutes.

Remove wrap and bake at 350°F 20-25 minutes. Serve warm with warm marinara sauce, if desired.

My 15 year old step son can't get enough of these! He is drooling when I bring out the Rhodes frozen bread rolls because he knows it means meatball muffins! This recipe is fun and can be mixed up with other stuffings!
