CHEESY BAY MEATBALL BISCUIT BOMBS

Move over seafood. Make way for meatballs on these classic Cheesy Bay biscuits. While this recipe could work with a homemade buttermilk or a from-scratch Cheesy Bay biscuit recipe, using pre-made biscuits will keep the time down. You could even do meatballs-in-a-blanket with crescent rolls or puff pastry. Add a dash of hot sauce to give the meatballs some zing! Go big AND stay home.

Ingredients

For the Biscuit bombs

  • 1 can homestyle, butter biscuits (or canned biscuit of your choice)
  • 8-10 Casa Meatballs
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (sharp is best)
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp Old Bay seasoning (or other similar seasoning blend)
  • Flour (for dusting)

For the Topping

  • 2 Tbsp melted butter
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp Old Bay seasoning (or other similar seasoning blend)
  • ¼ tsp dry parsley • 1/8 tsp kosher salt

Directions

  1. Prepare Casa Meatballs according to package instructions.
  2. Change oven temp to 350°F (or temperature indicated on your particular brand of canned biscuits).
  3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silpat. Set aside.
  4. Separate dough into individual biscuits (most brands offer 8-10 biscuits per can).
  5. On a clean surface, place your biscuit layers out and sprinkle with shredded cheddar cheese and a little bit of garlic powder and Old Bay. Use flour to dust your surface if you’re concerned about sticking. Using your hands or a rolling pin, roll or press the biscuit into a 4” circle, ensuring the garlic powder and cheddar cheese are pressed deeply into the dough. Repeat for all biscuits.
  6. Place one meatball (and a little extra cheddar if you like) into the center of each biscuit round.
  7. Wrap dough around meatball, pressing edges to seal. Place seam-side down on your baking sheet, leaving room for spreading. Continue until all biscuits bombs have been completed.
  8. In a small bowl, whisk together melted butter, garlic, Old Bay, dried parsley and salt. Evenly spoon or brush each biscuit with the melted butter, ideally coating the entire bomb in glorious melted butter. Feel free to add a sprinkle of shredded cheddar to the tops for a crispy, cheesy crust.
  9. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve warm! Top with extra melted butter topping if you like.
