Easy Mini Meatball Sandwiches

Another meal that I thought I might be able to force a kid to eat.

Mini Meatball Sandwiches

3 sausages out of casing, or meatball mix, or ground turkey, whatever you've got!
half an onion finely chopped
finely chopped carrot (I like to sneak some carrot in there since they couldn't see it through all the cheese and sauce. Hm, maybe thats why they don't trust me when I feed them)
Couple cloves pressed garlic
About a fourth cup bread crumbs
1 egg
freshly grated parm
provolone or mozz slices
2 crescent roll rubes

Cut the crescent roll into rounds like so

Make the meatball mixture... add to meat the breadcrumbs, italian seasonings, egg, onion, carrot (if you are tricky like me), parm, garlic, salt, all that good stuff.

Scoop about 1 tablespoon round of the meatball mix on top of each crescent dough round.


Bake at 375 for about 20 - 24 minutes. I had to take it out and make sure it was cooked all the way through.

Top with a little slice of cheese
Let them get gooey
Then pour some heated tomato sauce on top. You could make crescent "tops" for these too, but I made mine open-faced so that I would have more. Top with basil too if you got it.
If Superman ate it, anyone will. After a couple hours of refusing dinner and begging for snacks, he finally came down at about 10 PM to try his "meatball pizza" ... I got an "I love you" sign so I guess it wasn't all that bad :)

YUM! I might make these with the kiddos this weekend...they'd love them! Another veggie I have started sneaking into stuff is grated zuchinni! It's a great addition to spaghetti sauce, and I have a really yummy sausage & tortellini soup that it goes hardly notice it, and it's so good for you! :o)

I love sneaking vegatables in! It makes me eat more veggies too, also a plus. Try sneaking in finely chopped broccoli. I have a friend who sneaks in broccoli to her tacos...sounds gross but her kids can't tell!
