How To Make Homemade Stuffed Meatballs

  1. Place beef, sausage, bread crumbs, cream, hot sauce, egg, salt, pepper and minced garlic into a large mixing bowl.  Gently stir to combine all ingredients without over stirring.  Scoop heaping tablespoon size meatballs onto a parchment lined dish.  Place cheese cubes in the middle of each meatball and roll into balls making sure cheese is surrounded with meatball mixture.
  2. Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat.  Place meatballs, in batches into oil and cook on all sides to brown.  Usually 3 minutes per side.  Remove meatballs from heat.  To serve, simmer in pasta sauce.  Serve with pasta or on hoagie rolls.

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.

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.

How To Store Leftovers

Store any leftover meatballs in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat as needed.
