Hello again, Pinky Pals! It’s Nicole from 365(ish) Days of Pinterest! I didn’t post last month because I was enjoying some time away from blogging to take advantage of summer time with my kids and just unplug for a while.
Now, I’m excited to be back sharing great recipes and fun ideas with you. I can’t wait to start sharing fall and Christmas ideas! But for now, here’s a quick recipe that’s perfect for these busy back-to-school nights.
How to Make Meatball Pockets
- Crescent roll dough (seriously, there’s nothing that stuff can’t do)
- Spaghetti sauce or pizza sauce
- Frozen meatballs
- Shredded mozzarella
Open crescent roll dough and separate into triangles. Place a spoonful of sauce in the middle of the wide end of the triangle as shown below. Top with one meatball (still frozen), add a little more sauce and sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Fold over the edges of the dough and pinch or fold the sides closed so it’s a sealed pocket. Bake at 325 for 14-17 minutes, until golden brown and cooked through.

Quick note: Another way I serve these (and stretch the dough a bit farther) is by cutting the dough into 12 equal squares and laying them in a muffin tin.
Then I just add the sauce, meatball and cheese on top and bake them open-faced. The bread puffs up around the filling and you get little meatball “muffins” that are perfect for snacking.
Making them that way would be more like a football party snack or appetizer. If you get two cans of crescent roll dough, you can use up the whole bag of meatballs and serve a crowd. Either way, they are easy and delicious-enjoy!
