Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    You can serve these as is, or dress them up by assembling with halved grape tomatoes, pickle slices and iceberg lettuce secured with toothpicks for a cute garnish.
  • tip 2
    To help with cleanup, bake meatballs on cooking parchment paper or foil in case some of the cheese oozes out of the meatballs.
