It is my favorite go to meal. This best friend isn’t fancy, isn’t hard and is always there when I need it.

I find this dinner is one my kids love because there is nothing else but simple ingredients in there, no kale hiding in the sauce, no quinoa in the meatballs.

This dinner is satisfying, warm, comforting and most importantly quick, easy and a crowd pleaser. Plus it requires no planning ahead, you just pull some meatballs out of the freezer and crack open a can of biscuits.
- Biscuits – I like to use the grand style biscuits for this recipe, but your favorite will work!
- Meatballs – To save time I use frozen meatballs, I really like Sam’s Club brand but your favorite brand or homemade cooked meatballs will work too!
- Spaghetti sauce – Use your favorite brand.
- Shredded Mozzarella – You could use any shredded cheese you like.
How to make Meatball Sub Bubble Up Bake
- So first you just pop open a can of Pillsbury Grands biscuits (or generic, whatever is on sale) and cut each one into 8ths.
- Then just stir all the biscuits around with a cup and a half to 2 cups of sauce. You can mix the sauce and biscuits in a bowl or right in the pan, the pan method saves on dishes lol.
- Then you just top the biscuits with the meatballs, as many as you like.
- Sprinkle the whole thing with shredded mozzarella and pop into a 375 oven loosely covered with foil for about 40 minutes. Then 10 minutes uncovered.
- Voila, dinner is served and it could not be any simpler or tastier!
What kind of meatballs are best for this dish?
The best kind is whatever your favorite kind is. If you like to make them from scratch go ahead and use those. I use frozen because this is my favorite I don’t have to think ahead dinner so those work for me. You can use chicken or turkey meatballs as well!
How can I jazz this up some?
If you don’t have picky eaters like me there are a few ways you can jazz this up, add some crushed red pepper and parm over the top for flavor. You can use provolone instead of mozzarella. You can also add some mushrooms or peppers to give it a punch of flavor.
