Cheese Stuffed Meatballs

Stuffing meatballs with cheese sounds delicious, right!?

It is! I took my regular meatball recipe and added a piece of mozzarella cheese to the center. I don’t know if I’ll ever make them without cheese again.

They are filling and delicious!

With my WW Personal Points I can have one meatball for 2 points or two meatballs for 5 points.

I used Sargento light string cheese to stuff the meatballs with. Two pieces was 3 points.

Each piece of string cheese was cut into 5 pieces, giving me 10 pieces total.

Any kind of light string cheese will work, just check that the points are the same.

How to make Cheese Stuffed Meatballs:

Start by adding the egg, Parmesan cheese, Italian breadcrumbs, garlic, parsley, salt and black pepper to a large bowl.

Mix the ingredients together then add in the ground beef. Mix everything together.

Divide the mixture into 10 even sized meatballs. Roll each ball then stuff a piece of cheese into the center. Make sure to wrap the meat around the cheese and completely seal it.

Place the meatballs on a baking sheet.

Bake the meatballs for 25 minutes at 400 degrees.

Now you can eat the flavorful meatballs with gooey mozzarella cheese. They’re so good!

I like to serve my cheesy meatballs with some marinara sauce and a salad. You could also add spaghetti noodles or zucchini noodles.

This is a recipe the whole family will love!
