Mozzarella Stuffed Meatballs

Mozzarella Stuffed Meatballs3

What is about stuffing one thing into another that makes people go crazy? Stuffed breads, stuffed crust pizza, stuffed cookies, and now, mozzarella stuffed meatballs. They look like a typical meatball, but in the center you’ll find a gooey, warm ball of cheese. Amazing. Talk about taking your everyday meatball up a notch.

To make these I used my favorite meatball recipe, then added a small cube of mozzarella cheese to the middle. You could even use cheese sticks for the center, if you desire. Need some ideas for sauce? Check out my favorite sauce recipe here, here, and here.

Ingredients:
1 pound ground beef
1 egg
3/4 cup breadcrumbs
1/2 cup parmesan cheese, grated
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1 teaspoon parsley
8 ounces mozzarella cheese, cubed

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Combine all of the ingredients, other than the mozzarella, in a large bowl. Use your  hands to mix the ingredients until well combined.

Take a small amount of the meat mixture and flatten it in the palm of your hand. Add 1 cube of the mozzarella, and use the palm of your hands to roll into a ball.
