Meatball Sub Cupcakes

This recipe got a “Wow!” from my husband after the first bite.  The best part is they take 10 minutes to assemble and 15 to bake, which makes them great for a busy weeknight. Recipe and photo courtesy of

*If you grocery store carries the seamless Pillsbury dough sheet this would be great for that.
