Monterey Jack Meatballs

My family loves pizza and could eat it every day. With a surprise cheese center, these saucy meatballs capture that fabulous pizza flavor.

  • Makes
    20 meatballs

Ingredients

  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 cup soft bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons dried minced onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pound lean ground beef (90% lean)
  • 1 block (4 ounces) Monterey Jack cheese, cut into 20 cubes
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 jar (14 ounces) spaghetti sauce
  • 1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese

Directions

  • In a large bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Divide into 20 portions and shape each portion around a cheese cube.
  • In a large skillet, brown meatballs in oil; drain. Add spaghetti sauce. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10 minutes or until the meat is no longer pink. Sprinkle with cheese.
You can enjoy Monterey Jack Meatballs by themselves. But for an even heartier meal, serve with cooked pasta and salad. Or serve on rolls for a deliciously different sandwich.
