Mozzarella Stuffed Meatballs

Almost 2 years ago I posted a spaghetti and meatball recipe that I regularly use. When I posted that recipe I had mentioned this stuffed meatball recipe and said that I would post it soon. I'm thinking 22 months later is not really SOON, but hey, better late than never!

These meatballs are amazing! I don't make them often enough but am always so glad when I finally do. They are great on top of spaghetti and they also make fantastic meatball hoagies!


Mozzarella Stuffed Meatballs

1 lb ground beef
1 lb ground pork or mild Italian sausage
1 cup breadcrumbs
1 TBSP Italian seasoning
3 eggs
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 lb mozzarella, cut into cubes

Olive Oil
Marinara (jar or homemade)

In a large bowl mix beef through pepper. Form into 2" balls. Press a cheese cube in the middle and seal the meat around it.

Heat 1/2" olive oil in a large skillet. Brown meatballs and then set aside on plate.

Pour marinara sauce into pan; bring to a simmer. Add meatballs and simmer until cooked through, about 30 minutes.

Serve over spaghetti or on top of a hoagie.
