Meatball Sub on a Stick


1 lb lean ground turkey

1/2 cup whole wheat bread crumbs

1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1 Tbsp dried Oregano

1 Tbsp dried Basil

1 Tbsp dried Parsley or 1/4 cup fresh chopped

1/2 tsp Crushed Red Pepper2 cloves garlic, minced

1 can Pillsbury Original breadsticks

1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

12 (10″-12″) wooden skewers

Marinara sauce for dipping

Instructions: Preheat oven to 375°Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside. In bowl combine ground turkey, bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, Oregano, Basil, Parsley, red pepper flakes and garlic. Form into 1 inch meatballs. Open can of breadsticks and starting with one breadstick at a time thread dough then meatball. Repeat the process with 2 more meatballs alternating dough-meatball, ending with dough. Make sure to spread dough and meatballs away from each other by about 1/4″, so the meatballs bake through and the dough has room to expand. Bake for 20 minutes until the meatballs are cooked through. Remove from oven and sprinkle each skewer with 1-2 Tbsp of shredded mozzarella cheese. Place back in oven for 2-3 minutes until cheese is melted. Serve immediately with warm marinara sauce for dipping.
