Cheesy Stuffed Meatball Sliders is what I’m talking about! I made these earlier this week and I can vouch for the fact that they are one of the best tasting homemade meatballs I’ve ever had!! And on top of it, my kitchen smelt like an italian restaurant, I’m sorry but that is one of my favorite smells!! If I could have a sticker that I could scratch and sniff and smell this every day, I would. If I could light a candle and smell this everyday, I would. Do you believe me yet?? Click Here for the actual recipe.
I started by combining the meat (I used ground turkey breast), egg, oil, bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, salt, pepper, basil and parsley into a meatloaf mixture.
Don’t be afraid to get in their! But don’t over mix that could be bad! For once I did my mixing perfect!
Then I formed meatballs using 3 tbsp of the mixture for each one. I got my mozzarella cheese ready to stuff into each meatball. I used the cheese sticks because I thought it would be easiest, however next time I’ll use fresh just to make it that much more ewy gewy!!
I took a piece a of mozzarella and stuck it in the middle of each meatball.
I pushed the piece of cheese into each meatball and reformed the meatball around the cheese.
I then poured 2 cups of the pasta sauce on the bottom of a greased baking dish (another pampered chef pan I LOVE!) and placed all of the meatballs into the dish. I also poured the last of the sauce around the balls, sprinkled some more bread crumbs and parmesan cheese on top.
I baked it in a preheated oven of 400F for 30-35 minutes. It smelled up my whole kitchen! Smelt like an italian restaurant!!
I cut my dinner rolls and assembled each meatball.
I even had to cut one open to see the cheese inside! This is where I would use fresh next time instead of the sticks!! (Thank you boo for letting me have a few cheese sticks LOL!!)
My husband gave it an 8 out of 10, hmmmmmmmm wonder if I’ll ever cook a 10!!!! I have leftovers and I’m pretty sure boo will eat some!! How can you not, LOOK at the yumminess…….I surrendered, into having 3!!!
