WHERE in the world have these been my entire life!!! Holy heck you guys.

You are in for a delight when you make these meatballs stuffed with cheese. And to be honest – they sound a lot more indulgent than they actually are. At least in my opinion! We usually serve our meatballs with cheese anyways so why not take them up a few notches and stuff them with a little mozzarella cheese, you know?

These meatballs are also oven-baked so they won’t make a mess on your stovetop (you’re welcome). And they are delicious served with anything you want! Keep things light and have some zoodles or over a salad. Or you can enjoy with your go-to pasta or rice. OH or we can make a meatball parm out of them?! I am so into that idea ha!

Let me know if you guys make these and I cannot wait to hear what you think!

What ingredients are in these CHEESE stuffed meatballs: 

How to make oven-baked cheesy meatballs:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. In a large bowl, mix together all the ingredients besides cheese until the meat is fully combined
  3. Scoop about 2 tablespoons of meat into your hand and flatten it a bit so it is in a round shape
  4. Add 1 square of the cheese then fold up the sides to form the meatball (add more meat if needed)
  5. Repeat for remaining meatballs
  6. Warm a cast iron skillet for a few then remove from heat and add the meatballs (it’s optional but helps brown one of the sides!)
  7. Place skillet into oven and cook for about 20 minutes or until meatballs are ready
  8. Serve with your favorite pasta, on a salad or anything you are craving!

  1. Just made these and they are awesome! It was my first time making meatballs and easier than i thought. I used one to one GF flour since that’s what I had on hand and it worked. Thanks for another fab recipe!
