Mozzarella Stuffed Meatballs


Spaghetti and meatballs is something that everyone in my house can always agree on and since the meatloaf from the other night was such a hit with everyone I decided to try a meatball variation with the Stove Top Stuffing crumbs.  The kids were a surprised when they cut into their meatballs and found their favorite food- CHEESE!  This recipe is going straight to the top of my "Kid Friendly" recipe list!  The stringy gooey cheese is sure to make anyone say YUM!

Ingredients:
  • 1 lb. Ground Beef
  • Mozzarella Cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon Basil
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Tablespoon Milk
  • 1 teaspoon Minced Garlic
  • 1 Tablespoon Parmesan Cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon Oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt 
  • 1/4 teaspoon Pepper
  • 1/3 Cup Stove Top Stuffing Crumbs (place dry Stove top in food processor and pulse a few times)
Makes 12 meatballs 
Grab enough meat to make a meatball and gently flatten it in your hand.  Place a piece of mozzarella inside and then for the meat into a ball.
Place on cookie sheet and bake for about 12 minutes at 375 degrees.
 I made mine the day before I needed them and put them in the fridge.  When ready I heated the meatballs in the pan of spaghetti sauce for about 15 minutes.  Then served sauce and meatballs over pasta.
