Mozzarella-Stuffed Meatballs

Mozzarella-Stuffed Meatballs


1 pound ground chuck
1 medium onion, finely diced
1 handful fresh parsley, finely chopped
1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 1/2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon hot pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup Italian-seasoned bread crumbs
1 egg
2-3 sticks mozzarella string cheese, cut into bite-sized pieces



1. Cook onions in olive oil over medium-high heat until translucent; remove from heat and let cool.
2. Combine remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Add cooled onions and mix well.
3. Before rolling each meatball, place a piece of the mozzarella cheese in the center and roll the meatball around it. If the meatballs are the size of a golf ball, you should end up with about 15 total.
4. Pan-fry the meatballs in a deep-sided skillet in olive oil until brown on all sides. Add tomato sauce and bring to a simmer so that the meatballs can finish cooking gently and flavor the sauce.
5. Add spaghetti and enjoy!
