How To Prepare Homemade Meatballs

Cheddar Stuffed Homemade Meatballs

I start with a large mixing bowl and use part ground beef and part ground sausage.  See recipe below for all other seasonings and ingredients.

Gently stir all ingredients together without over mixing.  Only mix until combined.

I use a medium cookie scoop to scoop my meat mixture onto a parchment lined dish.  This way your meatballs are all the same size.

Place a piece of cheese in the middle of each mound of meat to get ready to roll.

Roll the meatballs into tight rounds, making sure the cheese is fully enclosed.

Heat oil into a large skillet over medium heat.  When it’s hot place meatballs, in batches, into hot pan.

Let them brown for 3-ish minutes per side.

Give a turn to get the other side.  You’ll notice some of the cheese will ooze out of some meatballs.  This is normal.

How To Serve Homemade Meatballs

*I like to simmer my meatballs in red sauce and serve over pasta.

*For any leftover meatballs, use them inside hoagie rolls for another dinner idea.
