Sandwiches get boring, but there’s nothing humdrum about these crescent wrapped meatballs. Turn meatballs and packaged crescent roll dough into delicious bites in just a few simple steps. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Pop open two tubes of crescent roll dough and cut each triangle into three pieces. Cut 24 thawed, or even partially thawed, meatballs in half. Place a pinch of shredded Italian-style cheese in the dough, top it with a meatball, and pinch closed. Bake your wrapped meatballs for 10-12 minutes and serve with a marinara dipping sauce.
Meatballs on a Stick
Kids love food on a stick, and nothing works better on a stick than meatballs. The secret to this snack is really the stick. Prepare the meatballs in your favorite way. It could be baked in the oven per package instructions, or you might toss them in a saucepot or crockpot with your favorite glaze. To serve, just stick a stick in each meatball and let your kids dig in. To make this truly kid-friendly, add a dip. Sticks and dips—kids will eat almost anything that involves sticks and dips. It’s a gimmick, for sure, but one that works.
Meatball Lettuce Wraps
This snack gives your kids a little bit of protein and a few veggies. It’s perfect. To make your wraps, choose your lettuce. Varieties like bibb, butter, and iceberg work best.

You can even add a small spoonful of cooked rice if you like. Add a dash of extra sauce on the rice for a snack-time win.
