I updated this recipe on 6.21.14 because I was no longer able to find this flavor of Mrs. Dash in the store. The update only added more flavor to the meatball. These are awesome, awesome meatballs.

How to Make Juicy cheese stuffed meatballs

Step-by-Step

  1. Remove sausage from casing or buy ground Italian Sausage. Add to beef, add crackers, all seasonings, Parmesan, sauce, worcestershire, and eggs and mix to combine.
  2. I used a large ice cream scoop and got 22 large meatballs.
  3. Scoop meat out and roll around in the palm of your hand until you get a pretty tight ball, then insert cheese cube into center, and fold meat over hole and roll in hand again until completely sealed.
  4. Place on bakers rack and bake 350° for 30 min. Add to sauce for a few minutes for if desired after removing from oven.
