Easy and excellent.
The whole family loved this recipe but especially the kids! I had to pass along to my 2 neighbors since their kids were at my house and loved them too!
The whole family loved this recipe. We will definitely be making these again. Can easily be doubled for a crowd.
I used Sam's Italian meat balls and Kroger's frozen yeast roll dough. It took about an hour for the dough to soften and only about 30 minutes to rise. We fixed them for a group of teens. They left the cookies and very quickly devoured the Meatball Buns!
These are awesome! My 12 year old daughter made these with no problems. They didn't last long on the table. It was a great appetizer dish. I did use frozen meatballs and they were very tasty. I will think about making my own meatballs to use next time but this recipe is definitely a keeper!
