Cheese Stuffed MeatballsSubmitted by: MAYFIELD0801
1 pound ground beef
1/2 white onion finely chopped
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
2 tablespoons Italian parsley, minced
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
1/2 pound mozzarella, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1 tablespoon olive oil
I have also made these with a mixture of chicken and turkey. They are really good.
2.Divide mixture into 16 balls.
3.Semi-flatten each ball, add a cube of mozzarella to the center and sculpt the meat mixture around it to form a seal.
4.Heat olive oil in a large, heavy pan and fry meatballs on each side (we know they're balls, find sides) for 3-5 minutes, or until browned.
5.Serve while piping hot for best cheese effect.
Serving Size: 16 meatballs
