Step by Step Method

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil and coat with nonstick cooking spray.

Step 2

In a large bowl, stir the egg, ketchup, onion, bread crumbs, garlic, salt, and pepper together. Gently mix in the ground beef.

Step 3

Divide the beef mixture into 16 equal mounds and flatten slightly. Place 1 piece of cheese onto the mound. Firmly wrap each piece of meat around a cheese cube. Place stuffed meatballs on the baking sheet.

Step 4

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until meat is no longer pink, turning the meatballs over after about 10 minutes.

I made these for New Years and topped them with sauce to serve on my buffet table. I stuffed them with Cheddar and Mozzarella cheese and served them with mini Italian rolls to make subs for the kids. We all enjoyed them!!

I did have to make changes to suit dietary and supply of certain ingredients. For dietary I had to omit the onion and use all heart smart beef mince/ground meat and as we don't get Italian seasoned breadcrumbs I used regular and added some Tuscan seasoning to the mix. I weighed up my mix and got 16 meatballs weighing 45 grams each and could only fit a 1/4" square piece of mozzarella cheese in the mince and cooked as per recipe and some of the cheese still leeched out of most of the meatballs and served it over fresh linguine and my basil and tomato spaghetti meat sauce over the meatballs and linguine and some grated sharp cheddar over the lot (family choice I personally would have gone with parmesan but had none on hand and I am the only one that really likes it). Thank you CouponGoddess for an enjoyable dinner, made for Alphabet Soup Tag Game.

I changed the recipe a little but the result was delicious meatballs that my family raved over. I used pepper jack cheese first of all because I wanted a mexican flavor. I omitted the ketchup in the meatballs. Instead I added in some Medium chunky salsa. When they were done I poured more salsa over them and let the topping heat through, then served them over Mexican rice for Cinco de Mayo. Yummy meatballs!
