Ingredients

  • 4 Ounces Mozzarella Cheese
  • 2 Pound Ground Beef
  • 1/2 Cup Parmesan grated
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoons Salt
  • 2 Teaspoons Italian Seasoning

Instructions

  • Cut the mozzarella into 1/2” cubes and set aside.
  • Preheat oven to 400 F, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl combine the ground beef, parmesan cheese, eggs, salt and Italian seasoning.
  • Using about 2 Tablespoons worth of meat, roll into a ball.
  • Press a cube of cheese through the center, and ensure the cheese so not exposed on the edge. Continue to do this with the remaining meat and cheese.
  • Place meatballs on prepared baking sheet and into the middle rack of the oven.
  • Bake for 12 minutes, be sure not to overcook as the cheese may spill out.
  • Serve with marinara and enjoy!

Notes

  • Overstuffing the meatballs can cause the cheese to spill out.
  • I was able to make 30 meatballs from this recipe, so a serving would be 5 meatballs. If you make larger meatballs divide the recipe by 6 and that will equal one serving size
