Italian Sausage Pastries

  • 1 lb. mild Italian pork sausage
  • ½ c. finely grated Parmesan cheese
  • ½ c. breadcrumbs
  • 2 T. finely minced onion
  • 1 T. dried parsley
  • 1 egg
  • 1 pkg. (16 oz.) refrigerated biscuits
  • Tomato sauce, optional

Preheat the oven to 400° F. Cover a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat; set aside.

In a large bowl, mix together the first six ingredients (pork sausage through egg) with your hands to form a consistent mixture. Form the mixture into eight large meatballs; set aside. Clean your hands thoroughly.

Open the package of biscuits and place them evenly on the silicone baking mat. Using your hands, press a divot into the biscuits that will fit a meatball. Then place a meatball into each biscuit.

Bake the pastries for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and the meatballs are cooked through. Serve warm with tomato sauce for dipping, if desired.
