Ingredients

How to make it

  • Cut the mozzarella into small enough cubes that you will be able to insert them into each meatball easily.
  • Combine meats, croutons, onions, egg and seasonings.
  • Shape meat mixture into bite-size meatballs.
  • Insert a cube of mozzarella into the center of each meatball, being sure it is completely covered by the meat.
  • Place meatballs on a heavy baking sheet and bake at 375 degrees until done, about 15 to 25 minutes (depending on the size of the meatballs).
  • When meatballs are cooked through, remove pan from oven and drain off excess drippings.
  • Pour pizza sauce over cooked meatballs and gently stir them to coat them with the sauce.
  • Return pan to oven and bake an additional 10 to 15 minutes, until sauce is hot (you can heat the sauce in the microwave or on the stovetop if you want to speed the process up a bit).
  • Remove pan from oven and sprinkle meatballs with grated parmesan cheese.
  • Serve hot, as an appetizer - or place on toasted sub rolls for pizza meatball sandwiches (a few slices of pepperoni added to the sub makes a good addition, too - or some sliced olives, etc...whatever you like on your pizza).

    I love meatballs and I like baking them in the oven. It is easier than chasing them around the skillet. This sounds really good.
