Mozzarella Stuffed Meatballs

What's a good comforting meal for a Saturday night when it's been a lazy, relaxing day?  Spaghetti and meatballs sounds good doesn't it?  I'll bet it sounds even better when the meatballs are made from scratch! 

Well, I'll bet you can't guess what we had for dinner on Saturday night...

I found this recipe on the Tasty Kitchen website a while back.  It looked really good at the time, so I clipped it and filed it away for future use.  Months later I've now tried it...though, I did change it up a bit.  Here's a link to the original recipe I found...and another link to the blog it came from, Your Everyday Momma.

Here's what I did with this recipe...

Mozzarella Stuffed Meatballs

1 pound ground beef
¾ cups Italian bread crumbs
2 teaspoons salt
⅛ teaspoons pepper
1 teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce
1 whole egg
½ cups milk
1/4 cup parsley
mozzarella cheese, sliced and chopped

Mix the bread crumbs, salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce, egg, milk, and parsley in a small mixing bowl. Add to the ground beef until well incorporated.  Using a metal spoon (preferably one you use to scoop cookie dough), scoop out mixture in the size of the meatballs you’d prefer. Before forming into a ball, place a small amount of mozzarella cheese in the middle and form the ball around so that all of the cheese is completely covered.  Brown the meatballs until almost completely cooked, place the meatballs on a jellyroll pan, and bake for 8-10 minutes at 350 degrees.

Serve with your favorite pasta and tomato sauce!

These meatballs are extremely filling!  David normally goes back for seconds when I make spaghetti and meatballs, but not with these babies!  After just one serving he'd had enough...try these out, they're taaaaaaaaaaasty!
