Cheese Stuffed Meatballs

Cheese Stuffed Meatballs

Number of Servings: 16

Ingredients

    1 pound ground beef

    1/2 white onion finely chopped

    1 clove garlic, finely chopped

    2 tablespoons Italian parsley, minced

    1 egg

    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

Tips

I have also made these with a mixture of chicken and turkey. They are really good.


Directions

1.In a large bowl, combine ground beef, onions, garlic, parsley, egg, salt, pepper and breadcrumbs (don't overmix or they'll be rock-solid).
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
