For this week’s Mini Chef Mondays post, I wanted to share an easy appetizer that’s perfect for Game Day! Both boys were able to get in on the action.
Everyone loves a meatball sub for game time, but they do get a bit messy! With these Meatball Sub Cups, everything stays a bit more contained. They’re the perfect little two bite snack.
With a quick trip to Save-A-Lot, we had everything we needed. Did I mention there’s only 4 ingredients you need for Meatball Sub Cups? We used Mantia’s Italian Style Meatballs, Mantia’s Pasta Sauce, Coburn Farms Provolone Cheese, and Ginger Evans Crescent Rolls.
To get started, roll out one can of crescent rolls and press the seams together. I used a pizza cutter to make 12 squares from our crescent dough.
Owen helped me put each square into a greased muffin pan and then add a spoonful of pasta sauce and a meatball on top.
If you’re thinking your two year old is too little to help in the kitchen, they’re not! Owen absolutely loved making sure that each cup had a meatball in it. After each meatball was added, he said “I did it”! He was so proud of himself for helping!
After they came out of the oven, Charlie spooned more sauce on top and we added provolone. Charlie used the pizza slicer to cut the cheese into quarters, perfect size for our meatball sub cups.
This is a little safer to me than him using a knife and he thought it was fun.
