  • 20 Polidori meatballs
  • 1 can Pillsbury crescent roll dough
  • 1 Egg beaten
  • 40 Candy googly eyes
  • Sesame seeds for garnish
  • 1 jar Marinara sauce


  • Heat oven to 375°F. Line work surface with cooking parchment paper. On parchment-lined surface, unroll dough (if using crescent roll dough, press perforations to seal); cut into 4 rectangles.
  • With knife or pizza cutter, cut each rectangle lengthwise into 10 strips, making a total of 40 pieces of dough.
  • Wrap 2 strips of dough around each meatball to look like "bandages," stretching dough slightly to cover meatballs.
  • Separate "bandages" near 1 end to show meatball "face." On ungreased large cookie sheet, place wrapped meatballs.
  • Brush with beaten egg wash and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  • Bake 13 to 17 minutes or until dough is light golden brown and meatballs are hot. Top with googly eyes and marinara sauce "blood". Serve with warm marinara sauce.
