How to Make Marinara, Meatball & Mozzarella Skillet Appetizer

Step-by-Step

  1. PREP/PREPARE
  2. Gather your ingredients.
  3. Chef’s Note: Choose your favorite sauce. I use this sauce:
    Traditional Italian Red Sauce
  4. Chef’s Note: Choose your favorite meatballs. I use these meatballs:
    Delicious Beef & Pork Meatballs
  5. Chef's Tip: I make the meatballs ahead of time (about 100), and freeze them. That way I always have some on hand for unexpected parties.
  6. Place a rack in the middle position, and preheat the oven to 375f (190c).
  7. Add the sauce and the meatballs to a skillet (I use cast iron).
  8. Chef’s Note: If this skillet looks familiar it’s the ones that they use at Holiday Inns to serve their skillet breakfasts. When one of the inns closed, I picked up about 15 of them. The diameter of the skillet is 6 inches (15cm).
  9. Chef’s Tip: To make this a one-dish recipe, the skillet will be used for the serving/presentation.
  10. Slowly bring up to a simmer, about 5 to 7 minutes.
  11. Remove from heat, and top with the mozzarella.
  12. Place in the oven and bake until the cheese begins to brown, about 8 to 10 minutes.
  13. PLATE/PRESENT
  14. Place the skillet on a heatproof trivet, and serve with some nice crusty Italian bread. Enjoy
  15. Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
