It’s fun to watch my friends eat these meatballs for the first time. They’re pleasantly surprised to find melted cheese in the middle. These meatballs are also great in a hot sub sandwich.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 16, 2014

"I like to use Newman's Italian dressing, I also am liberal with the herbs. If you have any left over, they make a wonderful meatball sandwich."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 12, 2013

"I made these meatballs, following the recipe to a 'T.' For me, they were just OK. If one were to eliminate the salad dressing, I really don't think these meatballs would have any taste at all. I probably won't make again. I actually like better the ones sold at the meat counter in one of the supermarkets in town :("

"My husband loved them!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 18, 2011

"I was worried my husband wouldn't like these because he doesn't eat a lot of cheese, but to my surprise he couldn't get enough! (Make sure to enclose the meat around the cheese very well or it will leak out.)"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 28, 2011

"Love this recipe. If you use cheese sticks it is a little easier!"
