12Spanish queen olives w/ pimentocut in half horizontally
1packageRefrigerated Crescent Sheet or Crescent Rolls
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Spray large baking sheet (approx. 12” x 17”) lightly with non-stick cooking spray or line with parchment paper.
In large bowl combine: ground beef, breadcrumbs, milk, onion, garlic, Parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning and egg. Mix until combined and form into 2 teaspoon measured meatballs. Press an olive half; cut side up into the meatball until level with the meatball.
Warm marinara sauce in saucepan over low heat.
Unroll crescent dough onto flat surface, long side facing you. If using traditional perforated crescent dough, pinch together perforations.
Use your hands to press dough into approx. 14” x 12” rectangle. Cut vertically into 3 equal columns and cut horizontally into 4 equal rows to form 12 rectangles.
Place two meatballs, olive side up, into the center of each rectangle about ½” inch apart. Pinch together the two end sides of the dough and the center between the meatballs.
Place on prepared baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes or until crescent dough is cooked to golden brown and meatball reaches 160 degrees F (using a food thermometer.)
When peepers are done, remove from oven serve with marinara sauce for dipping. They’re creep-i-licious!!
*Using a higher fat ratio ground beef may cause the meatballs to give off more juices when baking and could effect texture and/or cook time. You could precook the meatballs for about 7 minutes and then proceed with the recipe. If short on time, use thawed frozen meatballs.
