Game day snacks are my favorite kind of snack because they are fun to make, and also because they can be made to accommodate a large group of people. When it's football Sunday, I don't want to have to be stuck in the kitchen all day and miss out on watching the game because I'm trying to cook something up for everyone. Snack hacks for game day are necessary if you want to be able to watch the game and eat at the same time. Rather than be stuck next to the oven trying to prepare a meal, I like preparing hearty meals that have that added convenience factor to them; today, I'm sharing my newest, go-to game day snack hack: Meatball Sub on a Stick!
Enjoying a meatball sub on a stick is the convenient way to eat one of my game day favorites, without the hassle of unnecessary kitchen time or the hassle of needing a plate (because with this snack, I can eat it with my hands!) Below you'll find the tutorial for how to make your own meatball sub on a stick, as well as another surprise to help you plan for your next football game day party!
Meatball Sub on a Stick
To create our meatball sub on a stick snack, you will need: bamboo skewers, pre-cooked meatballs, pre-made biscuit dough, shredded mozzarella cheese, basil, and marinara sauce (for dipping).
First, start by trimming pre-made biscuit dough into long pieces (about 2-inches wide).
Roll the dough into a long, snake-like piece of dough. Poke the skewer through one side of the dough. Slide a pre-cooked meatball (ensure that you cook the meatballs as directed first) onto the skewer and next to the dough.
Wrap the dough around the meatball. The dough should look like it's giving the meatball a hug.
Then, slide another meatball onto the skewer and continue to wrap the dough around the second meatball.
Continue adding meatballs onto the skewer and wrapping dough around them, until your skewer is full and the dough is creating an S-shape on the skewer.
Depending on the directions for your pre-made dough, you will need to bake them in the oven accordingly.
My store-bought biscuit dough had me bake my meatball sub sticks in the oven at 350 degrees (F) for 10-12 minutes. With just 2 minutes left until my dough was fully cooked, I removed my subs from the oven and sprinkled them with shredded mozzarella cheese and basil. Then, I placed them in the oven for the remaining 2 minutes of my directed cook time.
Nothing goes better with a game day, meatball sub on a stick than an ice cold bottle of water!
