Cook time: 20 minutes | Total time: 30-50 minutes


These should actually be called "Cheesy Meaty Meatball Bites Wrapped in Puffed Pastry Little Bites of Delciousness". Using just 4 ingredients, you can have a quick but impressive holiday appetizer ready for your family (or just for yourself on a rainy day). These are savory, salty, meaty, and feel like they're giving your tastebuds a warm flaky pastry holiday hug.


  • 1 package of Beyond Meatballs Italian Style (defrosted)

  • 1/2 cup of cooked spinach (frozen or fresh)

  • 1/2 cup of vegan mozzarella cheese

  • 1 roll (about 14oz) of pre-rolled puff pastry dough (defrosted)

  • Marinara sauce or brown gravy for dipping (optional)


  • Make sure the Beyond Meatballs and puff pastry dough are completely defrosted before making this recipe. If you're using frozen cooked spinach, defrost it in the microwave and drain/squeeze out any excess liquid.

  • Place the meatballs in a large mixing bowl and mash them up with the back of a fork.

  • Add in the spinach and cheese. Mix until everything is combined evenly.

  • Roll out the puff pastry dough on parchment or wax paper (so it doesn't stick to your countertop).

  • Refer to the images below for this next part.

  • Divide the pastry dough into thirds, long-ways.

  • Divide the meatball mix into thirds as well. Using your hands, roll parts of the meatball mix into logs and lay them in the middle of the puff pastry.

  • Starting in the middle of the log, bring the sides of the puff pastry together over the meat, and pinch the dough together to seal it shut.

  • Flip the logs over so they are laying with the seam side down.

  • Carefully cut them into bite-size pieces (you should be about to get 33-34 pieces).

  • Slice little vent holes in the top of each piece with the tip of a knife.

  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Transfer some of the puffed pastry bites into the baking sheet (as many as can fit, or you can do them in batches).

  • Bake in a 425° F oven for 20-22 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown.

  • Remove them from the oven and immediately transfer the cooked bites onto a plate.

  • Enjoy hot and serve with some marinara dipping sauce or brown gravy (but honestly they don't need any sauce in my opinion).

Tips and Tricks:

  • Store any leftovers in an air-tight container for up to 5 days. Reheat on a baking sheet in the oven at 350° F for about 5 minutes or until they're warmed through, or microwave them on a plate until warmed through.
