  • 3 packages Stonefire Original Mini Naan (12 mini naan breads)
  • 12 meatballs frozen or homemade
  • 3/4 cup marinara sauce
  • 3/4 cup shredded Provolone cheese

  • Preheat the oven to 350F.

  • Wrap the naan in a damp paper towel.
  • Warm the mini naan in the microwave until it it soft and pliable.
  • Gently fit the naan into the greased muffin cups.

  • Carefully fit a meatball into a naan cup on a baking sheet.
