Puff Pastry Meatball Marinara Bites


Puff Pastry Meatball Marinara Bites are like mini meatball subs or mini meatball pizza bites. They are delicious, especially served piping hot, right out of the oven, and, best of all, they are easy to make and they serve a crowd, so your guests can munch away while they mingle. These bite-sized appetizers are great for the holidays, any Super Bowl nosh fest, or they make a great snack any time of the year.
