Total Time: 40 minutes, including prep

Yield: 10 clouds

  • 10 medium sized meatballs (any kind, I used leftover turkey meatballs)

  1. Preheat oven to 375 F.
  2. On a baking sheet, press out one container of biscuits until dough is flat, about one inch apart. Sprinkle garlic on the dough, add a meatball.
  3. Dice string cheese into 4 even pieces, add 2 pieces, one to each side of meatball.
  4. On the counter top, open the second package of dough, flatten out, then top each meatball creation with the second pocket of dough, pinching the edges.
  5. Repeat with 9 additional dough rounds.
  6. Bake for 30 minutes, broil for 2 to get nice browned look.
  7. Serve with 1/2 cup each of tomato sauce for dipping.

Are the meatballs precooked or do you insert then raw? If raw, 30 mins doesn't seem to be enough for poultry, e.g. Turkey, and the juices would impede the pastry from browning.
