The Meatball Bomb
These are ” the bomb”as my kids would say so this is how the name came about.
One dozen cooked meatballs about the size of a tennis ball.
48 slices of prosciutto ham, four slices of ham for every meatball.
6 sticks of string cheese, 1/2 stick of cheese for every meatball
3 cups of your favorite tomato sauce
2 pounds of pizza dough cut into 12 balls
Crisco to grease the baking pan
Preheat the oven to 475 degrees
Have the meatballs, cheese, ham and sauce all laid out on the side of your work area.
Take the pizza dough and divide it into 12 pieces.
Flatten it out to the size of a dessert dish.
Take a meatball and carefully make a hole in the meatball. Make sure you do not go all the way threw to the other side.
Place the cheese in the hole.
Place one teaspoon of sauce in the hole.
Cover with the rest of the meatball.
Place four slices of ham on each piece of dough
Put one teaspoon of sauce on the ham
Place the meatball on top of that with the cheese hole upside down on the dough.
Pull the dough up like you would be making a purse.
It should be round.
Keep the seam on the bottom when you place the bomb on the pan.
If there is extra ham you can dice it up and sprinkle it on top of each meatball.
Put six on each tray.
Bake on the bottom shelf in the oven for 12 to 15 minutes or until nice and brown.
Serve with two or three tablespoon of sauce to dip the meatball.
These are fabulous.
Great with a salad.
