Meatball Biscuit Bento, and a Quick & Yummy Appetizer Idea

While we are away for Christmas, I have a few old bentos to blog. This one, from back in October (I think), was a must-share, since it's an awesome quick appetizer idea for Christmas Eve, New Year's Eve, or just for lunches--meatball biscuits with marinara for dipping!

This was Faith's lunch, featuring two meatball biscuits and a side of marinara in the EasyLunchboxes Mini Dipper container.  To go with that, she had a cutie orange, carrots and a homemade chocolate cookie with sprinkles. Lunch is packed in our Easy Lunchboxes.

To make the meatball biscuits, flatten out canned biscuits.  Sprinkled a little bit of shredded mozzarella in the middle of each biscuits, then add a frozen meatball to it.  Wrap the biscuit around the meatball, pinch the ends together and invert them into a mini-muffin pan.  Bake per the package directions for the biscuits, then serve with marinara.  You can also brush them with a bit of garlic butter while baking.  We sometimes make these along with mozzarella sticks and frozen pizza for an appetizer night dinner and the kids like them for lunch too!
