This is a recipe from my mother. I like to make up a batch or two and store in the freezer till I'm ready to cook them.—Holly Camozzi, Petaluma, California

Ingredients

  • 1 large egg yolk, beaten
  • 1/2 pound lean ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons grated onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Dash pepper
  • 6 slices bread
  • 24 cubes cheddar cheese (1/2-inch cubes)

Directions

  1. In a bowl, combine egg yolk, ground beef, onion, salt and pepper. Shape mixture by teaspoonfuls into 24 balls. Remove crusts from bread; roll flat and cut into 1-1/2-in. rounds. Place meatballs on bread rounds; make a depression in each ball and fill with a cube of cheese, making sure bread is covered with meat mixture.
  2. Place on a baking sheet. Broil in preheated oven about 6 in. from heat for 3-5 minutes or until no pink remains. Garnish with ketchup, mustard, sliced green onions or sliced dill pickles if desired.
