    Things To Grab

    • Large baking sheet
    • Parchment paper
    • Hy-Vee nonstick cooking spray
    • Medium bowl
    • Large nonstick skillet
    • Whisk
    • Small bowl
    • Serving platter


    1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line large baking sheet with parchment paper. Spray with nonstick spray; set aside. 

    2. Combine sausage, 1 egg, bread crumbs, and 1 tablespoon taco seasoning in a medium bowl; do not overmix. Form mixture into 8 (2-inch) meatballs.

    3. Cook meatballs in a large nonstick skillet over medium-low heat for 7 to 9 minutes or until well browned, turning frequently. Remove from heat. 

    4. Separate crescent rolls into 8 triangles. Arrange in a circle on prepared baking sheet with points of dough outward and forming a 4-inch open center. Sprinkle 1/2 cup cheese in a ring near center of dough circle. Place 1 meatball on the outer point of each dough triangle. Fold each dough point up and over meatball and roll up toward center to form a ring. 

    5. Whisk together remaining egg, water, and remaining 1 tablespoon taco seasoning in small bowl. Brush over dough. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup cheese. 

    6. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes or until golden brown and meatballs reach 165 degrees. Cool for 10 minutes. Transfer to a serving platter. Garnish with desired garnishes. Serve with pico de gallo and sour cream.
