Meatball Bubble Biscuits

Meatball Bubble Biscuits- a hearty appetizer and crowd pleaser.

I originally had another post scheduled for today, but I made these meatball bubble biscuits this week and they were a huge hit with my family.  My hairstylist Nancy shared the recipe with me.  They are a hearty appetizer for a party and I thought they’d be great for the Super Bowl this Sunday.

You can also make them for your family for dinner.  If you’re the type of mom who prepares after school snacks for your kids, your kids will love them.  My kids will vouch that I am not the type of mom who prepares after school snacks.  They know where the pantry and refrigerator are located.

The meatball bubble biscuits still taste great when reheated.  Depending on the number of biscuits in the can, this recipe makes roughly 16-20 meatball bubble biscuits. I hope you enjoy them.

    I am not exaggerating to say that my mouth started watering the minute I saw this picture. WOW. They look *so* good!! I actually think I could do this. I’m not sure if they will be as pretty as yours, but I’m trying this weekend. I can’t wait! I’m pinning this right now!! –Lisa

    These look so wonderful! I will be adding these to my recipe box for sure! They also don’t really sound all that difficult to make. I can understand why they are so popular at your house!

    These were a big hit. Thanks for this fun recipe! We did, however rename them “meatball bombs.” My boys felt that bubble biscuit was too “cutesy.” (Insert rolling eyes) I used mini/party meatballs so, bonus, I got to skip the cutting step! Filing this recipe for future use…

      Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment Wendy. I’m glad the “meatball bombs” were a hit with your boys. Meatball bombs definitely has a more masculine tone to it. I think I actually like that title a little more :)

    My son: “Hey mom, can you make some of those meatball bombs for Friday night?” (Homecoming game tailgate party)
    Me: “Sure. Who all’s coming so we can see how many we want to make.”
    My son: “Just make like 100.”

    We definitely like these. And they are super easy, but 100? LOL

      So glad they are a hit with your family. If you tackle (no pun intended) 100 of them I think you deserve the Mom of the year award! Have fun at Homecoming. We had ours last weekend. I’m sharing a chex mix tomorrow that’s a little less time consuming and perfect for tailgating :)

    This recipe intrigued me as it looks so delicious. However, since I don’t buy processed food [i.e. canned biscuits and frozen meatballs] I made everything from scratch and substituted a yeast roll recipe for the biscuit.

    Amazing – thank you kindly for the great inspiration. I will share your recipe with my friends and grown kids who don’t have time to cook from scratch.

    Either way – definitely a keeper.
