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 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 lb mozzarella, cut into cubes
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.
