The internet is full of interesting looking recipes these days. Some are easy, some are difficult. Some seem easy but are really difficult. This one that I found through FB was quite simple. Of course, there were a few tweaks I made to the recipe. Here you go, pictures of the process and all!
Cheesy Stuffed Meatballs
- 1 lb spicy Italian sausage
- 1 lb ground beef (lower the fat, the better)
- 2 TBS. olive oil
- 1 tsp. garlic powder
- 1 tsp. dried oregano
- 1 tsp. Pink Himalayan salt
- 1/2 tsp. pepper
- 1/2 cup grated parmesan
- 2 or 3 mozzarella cheese sticks
- 8 oz. mozarella cheese
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. You’ll need a pan you can put into the oven at this temperature.
Combine the sausage and beef.
Add the garlic, salt, pepper, oregano and parmesan cheese to the meat mixture and mix well.
Slice mozzarella sticks into 1/2″ pieces.
Oil your pan. Take a small handful of the meat mixture, pat flat in your hand and place a mozzarella stick piece in the middle. Create your meatball, push around a bit in the oil to make sure it won’t stick.
Once you’ve filled your pan, place in the oven for about 12 minutes, or until your meatballs are browned. Top with shredded mozzarella cheese and bake for another 5 or so minutes, until your cheese is bubbling.
