Meat and Cheese Filled Biscuits

The web site where I found this recipe calls these "Meatball Bubble Biscuits". (The recipe can be found at http://kathiecooks.blogspot.com/2010/08/meatball-bubble-biscuits.html)
I decided to just title them "meat and cheese filled biscuits" because my grand daughter plays with bubbles so much and I've seen the face she makes when she eats the bubbles that are flying! That face reminds me that any food with the name bubbles in it might conjure up a soapy foul taste and a delightfully funny face. Thankfully these tasted great and it didn't matter what the name was. These are a snap to make and went great with our spaghetti dinner tonight. My grand daughter is trying to say "sketty betty" instead of spaghetti. It's adorable and I can't help but smile when I think of it. So next time you make "sketty betty" try these fun little biscuits on the side.

 *Makes 20 small biscuits


1 can refrigerated biscuit dough (slice or pull apart layers on each biscuit to make two sections)
10 Italian style meatballs, cut in half (just buy the frozen kind and thaw them first)
2 sticks string cheese (cut each stick into 10 equal pieces)
1 Tbsp Parmesan cheese (use fresh grated)
1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
1/4 tsp garlic powder
(Optional....marinara sauce for dipping)

Preheat oven to 375°
 Cut or separate biscuits into two layers. Place 1 meatball half and one piece of cheese into each biscuit. Wrap dough around it and seal all the edges. Place the filled biscuit, seam side down, into a greased, 9"round cake pan or a pie tin. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, garlic powder and Italian seasoning. Bake for 18-20 min or until golden brown.
