Instructions:

Crafting the Meatballs:

  1. Preheat and Prep:
    • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Mixing the Meatball Mixture:
    • In a large bowl, combine ground beef, breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, chopped parsley, minced garlic, egg, salt, and black pepper. Mix until well combined.
  3. Forming Meatballs:
    • Shape the meat mixture into golf ball-sized meatballs, ensuring they are uniform for even cooking.
  4. Baking the Meatballs:
    • Place the meatballs on the prepared baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until cooked through.

Creating the Garlic Butter Sauce:

  1. Melt and Saute:
    • In a saucepan, melt the unsalted butter over medium heat. Add minced garlic and sauté until fragrant.
  2. Add Freshness:
    • Stir in chopped parsley, allowing it to infuse the butter with freshness. Set aside.

Assembling the Garlic Bread Meatball Bombs:

  1. Flatten Biscuit Dough:
    • Flatten each biscuit dough round into a disc, creating a surface for wrapping the meatballs.
  2. Place Meatball and Cheese Cube:
    • Put a cooked meatball and a cube of mozzarella cheese in the center of each flattened biscuit round.
  3. Seal and Form Balls:
    • Wrap the biscuit dough around the meatball and cheese, sealing it tightly to form a ball.
  4. Dip in Garlic Butter Sauce:
    • Dip each garlic bread meatball bomb into the prepared garlic butter sauce, ensuring it’s generously coated.
  5. Arrange on Baking Sheet:
    • Place the bombs on the baking sheet, leaving some space between each.
  6. Bake to Golden Perfection:
    • Bake in the preheated oven for 15-18 minutes or until the garlic bread is golden brown.
  7. Brush with More Garlic Butter:
    • Once out of the oven, brush the tops of the garlic bread meatball bombs with additional garlic butter for extra flavor.

Cook Notes and Variations:

Spicy Kick:

  • Add a pinch of red pepper flakes to the meatball mixture for a spicy twist.

Bacon Bliss:

  • Wrap each meatball in a slice of bacon before encasing it in biscuit dough for an extra layer of savory goodness.

Herb Infusion:

  • Infuse the garlic butter sauce with additional herbs like rosemary or thyme for a herbaceous kick.

Marinara Dip:

  • Serve the garlic bread meatball bombs with a side of marinara sauce for dipping.

Mushroom Magic:

  • Add sautéed mushrooms to the meatball mixture for a flavorful and earthy dimension.

Keto Versions:

Almond Flour Alchemy:

  • Replace breadcrumbs in the meatball mixture with almond flour for a keto-friendly alternative.

Cheesy Crust:

  • Create a cheesy crust using almond flour, mozzarella, and cream cheese instead of biscuit dough.

Butter Upgrade:

  • Substitute the biscuit dough with a mixture of almond flour, butter, and eggs for a low-carb option.
