Cheesy Stuffed Meatballs

For me, food has to meet a few different criterion to make my plate. It either must be really nutritious, or taste really good. Luckily for me, Cheesy Stuffed Meatballs is both. Because I tend to steer away from white flour, you won’t find me eating pasta with this meal. If you want to, go for it. If you want to make this a meatball sub, you do you, brother. I won’t judge. I eat these with a just a fork, because that’s how I roll. Whatever you do, make these soon. They take a bit of work, but are so worth it.

Cheesy, gooey centers bring these flavor-packed meatballs to a whole other level of deliciousness. These are great served as a side to pasta, on italian bread for subs, or as-is as part of a tasty Italian meal.

Ingredients

  • 2lb ground beef
  • 1 Small onion (finely chopped)
  • 3 cloves garlic (finely chopped)
  • 2 eggs (beaten)
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon italian seasoning (basil, oregano, and parsley)
  • 2 jars pasta sauce (I prefer Paul Newman's )
  • 8oz mozzarella cheese (cut into 1/2 inch cubes)

Directions

Step 1
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Step 2
Mix all the ingredients except the pasta sauce and cheese together.
Step 3
Add 1/2 cup of the pasta sauce to the beef mixture.
Step 4
Shape into approximately 16 meatballs, placing a cube of cheese in the middle.
Step 5
Place meatballs onto a greased cookie sheet.
Step 6
Bake in the oven for 35 minutes, flipping halfway through.
Step 7
Heat the remaining pasta sauce on the stove. When meatballs are done, place into the sauce.
Step 8
Cook over low heat for twenty minutes, stirring constantly to prevent burning.
Step 9
Serve over pasta, on italian bread, or as-is.
