Mozzarella Stuffed Meatballs
Mozzarella Stuffed Meatballs have been around for as long as I can remember but one night we wanted something a little different so I set out to do that. I pulled out my trusty slow cooker and got ready whipping up a batch of meatballs. Then the inspiration struck that I needed to use the mozzarella in the fridge so Stuffed Mozzarella Meatballs is what I decided to make. I stuck with the tried and true meatball recipe I always make but instead of plain, I put mozzarella in the middle.
As we all know meatballs are something that are versatile as well as unique. Each family has their own way of making this delicious staple but here is how we did ours.
1 pound of fresh beef
1 pound of fresh sausage
1 medium onion chopped
2 cups bread crumbs (seasoned most generally Italian but plain works fine)
Salt, Pepper and garlic to taste
Other seasonings as you would like (Italian, etc.)
1 small piece of fresh mozzarella cheese in the middle (about the size of a dime)
Wrap the mozzarella in the middle, and drop into the slow cooker. Then, add a can or jar of spaghetti sauce and you are good to go. Turn on the slow cooker for 4 hours and walk away.
Now, when I started making these mozzarella stuffed meatballs I had planned on having meatball subs with them. But quickly decided to use a package of fresh pasta from Dove Olive Oil and it ended up being an out of this world meal. I used vegetable linguine and let me tell you the picture doesn’t do it justice. It was a great way to enjoy the mozzarella stuffed meatballs and there is nothing better than fresh pasta!
