Cheese Stuffed Meatballs ~ Recipe

Do you love meatballs? We love meatballs and I have been looking for a fun new recipe to try out. Just the other day I posted a review/giveaway for Menu For The Week which is a menu planning online service. This is one of the great recipes that Dawn uses that combines Beef and Cheese to make very tasty Cheese stuffed meatballs. You can use your favorite meatball recipe and just add cheese.

Cheese Stuffed Meatballs 


1 lb ground beef
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 cup bread crumbs
3 mozzarella string cheese (we used block cheese and it was Old Cheddar)
3 tablespoons olive oil

  1. In a large bowl, combine meat, bread crumbs and seasonings. 
  2. Cut string cheese into about 6 chunks each. 
  3. Make 1/2" in diameter meatballs formed around string cheese chunk.
  4. Over medium heat, heat olive oil in a large skillet. Brown meatballs on all sides. Be sure oil is hot or meatballs will stick.
  5. Serve over spaghetti or rice.
This was a really nice change to our regular meatballs. The kids also loved them and asked for seconds. We served ours with pasta sauce and spaghetti. Very tasty and we will be having this again. These were very easy to make and can be made with your favorite meatball recipe. We didn't have cheese strings so we chopped up block cheese as we always have this in the house.
I would love to attend the Eat, Write, Retreat conference in May to learn more about cooking, taking wonderful pictures and meeting other great food bloggers and brands. For the next two Mondays Canadian Beef is giving people the chance to attend this great conference compliments of Canadian Beef scholarship (This is a paid ticket to the conference). Here's hoping Marvelous Mommy Meals will be heading to Washington DC in May!
