Since I made my Easy Berry Phyllo Tarts a couple of weeks ago, I have had a lot of extra phyllo dough in the refrigerator. What to do? What to do?
Art and I decided we would come up with some kind of phyllo-related appetizer to bring to our friends’ monthly wine party. Since we already had some frozen meatballs, we decided to try meatballs in phyllo.
The recipe was super easy to make and a big hit at the party besides!!! Try them and tell me what you think. We served ours with a barbecue sauce dipping sauce, but sweet and sour sauce would work really well also.
Meatballs in Phyllo Appetizers
1 bag of frozen meatballs (we used Trader Joe’s mini meatballs)
1 box of refrigerated phyllo dough
Cook meatballs in oven according to directions on package.
Allow to cool slightly.
Lay 4 sheets of phyllo at a time, stacked, on a cutting board. Cut into 3 inch squares.
Place one meatball in the center of each square.
Fold phyllo corners up, then twist the top.
Place appetizers on a greased cookie sheet. Make sure they are not touching each other.
Bake for 15 minutes at 350F or until golden brown.
