Fancy Covered Meatballs

  • Yield: 16 pieces

My sister discovered this recipe in an old recipe book used as a fund-raiser a long time ago. It is an appetizer she uses for special dinner parties but can be used anytime. My family enjoys it whenever I make it.


1pound lean ground beef
1package onion soup mix
1package refrigerated crescent rolls


  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. Mix ground beef with onion soup mix and form into 16 one-inch meatballs.
  3. Open rolls on a cutting board. Cut 8 rolls down the middle, making 16 pieces. P
  4. ress each one with palm of hand to flatten. Place meatball on wide side and roll up bringing sides together.
  5. Place on cookie sheet and bake 13 to 15 minutes until lightly browned.
