Ingredients

Steps

  • 1
    Heat gas or charcoal grill for indirect cooking over medium heat (about 350°F). Separate dough into 8 biscuits. Press or roll each biscuit to form 6-inch round.
  • 2
    Place two cheese strips in center of each round. Top half of each dough round with 4 meatball halves and 1 1/2 teaspoons sauce.
  • 3
    Fold dough over filling; firmly press edges of dough with fork to seal. Place pockets on double thickness of heavy-duty foil sprayed with cooking spray, about 1 inch apart.
  • 4
    Brush tops of pockets with melted butter. Sprinkle pockets with Parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning.
  • 5
    Place foil on grill over indirect heat; cover. Cook 21 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with additional pasta sauce.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Serve Grilled Meatball Pockets with a simple side salad with Italian dressing, cherry tomatoes and grated Parmesan cheese.
  • tip 2
    There’s no need to turn the pockets, since they’re basically baking on the grill. Don’t cover with foil or pull up the sides of the foil while grilling. The foil is used as a disposable cookie sheet. Place foil on unrimmed baking sheet or cutting board to easily transfer to the grill.
  • tip 3
    Indirect heat grilling essentially turns your grill into an oven. Heat one side of the grill, and place food on the opposite side. Since this method is closer to baking than traditional grilling, avoid opening your grill too often during cooking, as this will let heat escape.
