Stuffed-Meatballs to Get Us Through the Week!

I don't know about you, but we LOVE meatballs at our house, especially if they're stuffed with cheese. Ok, we just love anything with cheese in it! LOL. Anyway, tonight, I decided to stuff some meatballs with Pepperjack and we had an amazing comforting meal!


1 egg yolk
1/4 c ketchup
1/4 c chopped onion
1/4 c Italian-seasoned bread crumbs
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 lb ground beef
6 (1/2-inch) Pepper Jack cheese cubes
1 Tbsp oil
2 c Marinara, Sauce
Penne, for serving
Parsley, for garnish
1. In a large bowl, stir the egg, ketchup, onion, bread crumbs, garlic, salt, and pepper together. Gently mix in the ground beef.

2. Divide the beef mixture into 6 balls. Firmly wrap each piece of meat around a cheese cube.

3. Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add the meatballs and brown 5 minutes on each side.

4. Add Marinara and down heat down to a simmer. Cover and cook until meatballs are cooked through, 10 minutes.

5. Serve over penne and garnish with parsley.
