  • 1  tablespoon water
  • 2  tablespoons sesame seed

Bake 14 to 17 minutes or until golden brown. Cool slightly; separate biscuit quarters.
Meanwhile, in 2-quart saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion; cook, stirring frequently, until onion is tender. Stir in chili sauce, 1/4 cup water, the mustard and chili powder. Cook 3 to 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until slightly thickened.
Add meatballs to chili sauce mixture. Cover; cook over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until meatballs are hot.
Split each biscuit quarter to make tiny bun. Fill each bun with 1 cheese piece, 1 meatball and some of the sauce. Secure with toothpick.
