Flaky dough wrapped around a meatball with gooey cheese… perfect game day food! If you’re looking for something to round out your Superbowl menu, then I would highly recommend trying these Meatball Bubble Biscuits! Italian flavors are hard to beat, especially in our house, so these were gobbled up in no time flat.
You’ll want to use “flaky” biscuits when making this because it will make separating the dough in half much easier. Look for the junior biscuits that come in a 12 ounce can and have 10 biscuits. That will yield a total of 20 bubble biscuits.
When prepping the biscuits, flatten out the biscuit dough, place the rounded edge of the meatball half on the bottom, place the piece of string cheese on top of the meatball and then pinch the seams to seal shut. Place the biscuit seam side down in the pan.
An 8 or 9-inch cake pan will work fine for this recipe, but if you have a springform pan available, it will make serving the biscuits a bit easier. If you choose to use a cake pan, which is what I did, and you want them to look pretty on a plate, then have 2 plates ready. One plate to turn the biscuits out on initially, they’ll be upside down, and then the second plate to turn them back over on, so they’re upright on the plate.

- Stretch the dough to form a 3 inch round and top with a meatball half (rounded side down) and a piece of string cheese.
- Wrap the dough around the meatball and cheese and seal the seams.
- Place the biscuits seam side down in the prepared pan. (I was able to get 12 around the edge, 7 in the second row, and 1 in the middle.)
