  • 2 cans Pillsbury Grands Jr. Golden Layers refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
  • Italian style meatballs (I used Aidells Italian chicken meatballs from refrigerated section you can use homemade or also frozen)
  • 3 sticks of mozzarella string cheese cut into pieces
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup butter melted
  • marinara sauce


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • In a small bowl mix melted butter, Italian seasoning and garlic powder.
  • Separate biscuits. Flatten the biscuits.
  • Cut meatballs in half and place one meatball half on each flattened biscuit.
  • Place a piece of string cheese on top of meatball and then wrap dough around it to seal.
  • Pour half of melted butter in 9 inch round cake pan and place each completed biscuit seam side down in pan.
  • Repeat until finished. Spoon the remaining butter over biscuits.
  • Bake 18-20 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Serve with marinara or pizza sauce.


I ended up making 16 biscuits bombs for my 9 inch round pan.
