Pesto Cheese Bombs

Ingredients:

  • 1 (16oz) package pre-made biscuit dough
  • 4 mozzarella string cheese sticks (cut into ½ inch pieces)
  • 1 cup pesto
  • 1 cup marinara sauce, warmed
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • Butter, for greasing

Directions:

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Thoroughly grease a round baking pan so the pesto bombs don't stick.
  • Split each biscuit into a top and bottom layer and slice each side in half, creating 16 dough rounds.
  • Cut each of the cheese sticks into quarters, and wrap each piece with the biscuit dough. Seal the edges to create a ball.
  • Add the pesto to a small bowl and roll each dough ball around in it until thoroughly coated. Place each one in a pan in a ring shape and cover with any remaining pesto.
  • Place the pan in the oven. Bake for approximately 22-25 minutes or until golden brown. Some melted cheese should be visible.
  • Serve warm with warm marinara on the side for dipping.
