Recipe: Mozzarella Stuffed Meatballs

Recipe: Mozzarella Stuffed Meatballs


I’m excited for the weekend- it’s been a long week for me. The recipe I’m sharing is SO simple, yet the food tastes like something you’ve slaved over. My kinda recipe. I found this recipe from a facebook post on the Tasty Page :  

You make the meatballs then set them in the crock pot and walk away. It’s that easy! Let me tell you, these things were gobbled up so quickly around my house. I even made them two ways- as you can see below. One dinner over pasta, and the next on a broiled hoagie roll with melted cheese!

Cut low moisture mozzarella
cheese into 3/4 inch cubes cubes. Store in refrigerator while preparing the

In a large
mixing bowl combine: 
1 pound
ground beef

1 pound hot Italian sausage

2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp
garlic powder
1 tsp black
1 cup bread
1/4 cup
parmesan cheese
2 eggs
1/2 cup
whole milk
1/2 cup
chopped parsley
Roll golf
ball sized balls with the meat mixture. Squish mozzarella cube into the center
and pull the edges of the meat ball around it until it’s a new ball again.
meatballs in slow cooker and cover in tomato sauce. 
Cook on
high for 2 to 2.5 hours.

    oh my word, YES. I have a dairy intolerance but would suffer the consequences for this. I used to make Manchego stuffed meatballs and just love cheese-stuffed meatballs. This recipe looks so good!

    I never thought about making fresh meatballs and putting them right into the crockpot, i would have thought you had to brown them, which is always a lot of work. Great idea, i'll be using this for sure.

      I will admit it felt weird to just put them in there..but it worked and it tasted amazing!
