It’s Sara from Dinner at the Zoo and today I’m bringing you these amazingly delicious mozzarella stuffed meatballs. Spaghetti and meatballs is one of the few meals that all three of my kids will eat, so it’s on a regular rotation at my house. While you certainly can’t go wrong with the classic version of spaghetti and meatballs, you can definitely upgrade the original, which I’ve done here by stuffing each meatball with mozzarella cheese. It’s an unexpected surprise to bite into a meatball and find the cheesy filling!

I make these meatballs with lean ground beef. I typically use the 90% lean ground beef, although ground turkey would also work well. The meat is combined with breadcrumbs, egg and seasonings and then wrapped around cubes of mozzarella cheese. I prefer to make these meatballs on the larger size, about 2 inches in diameter. If you’d like to go smaller on the meatballs, simply cut your cheese into smaller cubes and take a few minutes off the cook time. I like to broil my meatballs; it uses way less oil than cooking meatballs in a pan and you can cook large batches at a time. I often make a double batch of these meatballs and freeze half the cooked meatballs for a later date. I typically use a high quality jarred marinara sauce on top of my meatballs, but you could definitely make your own sauce if you prefer.
