Celebrate Halloween with this festive appetizer recipe from the Pediatric Diabetes Clinic
Knife or Pizza Cutter
Large cookie sheet
1 can (8 oz) refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
20 frozen cooked turkey meatballs, thawed
Ketchup or mustard
Marinara sauce (1 oz or 2 tablespoons = 4 gm Carb)
Heat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Put piece of parchment paper on work surface (counter). Unroll dough onto parchment paper, press out perforations to make one sealed large rectangle. Cut into 4 small rectangles with knife or pizza cutter
Using knife or pizza cutter, cut each rectangle into 10 strips. You will have 40 strips of dough after all 4 small rectangles cut.
Wrap 2 strips of dough around each meatball to look like “bandages”.
Separate “bandages” near one end to show meatball “face”. Place wrapped meatballs on ungreased large cookie sheet.
Bake 13 to 17 minutes or until dough is light golden brown and meatballs are hot. With ketchup or mustard, draw “eyes” on mummy bites.
Serve warm with marinara sauce if desired.
