Ingredients

Meatball Mixture

1 pound lean ground beef

1/3 cup finely chopped onion

1 cup Italian bread crumbs

1 large Land O Lakes® Egg

3 tablespoons ketchup

2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

6 (3/4-ounce) slices hot pepper cheese, finely chopped

Sauce

1 1/2 cups prepared marinara or pasta sauce, heated

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Spray 13x9-inch baking pan with no-stick cooking spray; set aside.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine all meatball ingredients except 1/2 cup bread crumbs and cheese in bowl; mix well. Stir in cheese. Shape tablespoonfuls of mixture into 24 (1 1/4-inch) meatballs. Place remaining 1/2 cup breadcrumbs in shallow dish. Roll meatballs in bread crumbs to coat; place into prepared pan. Cover; refrigerate 1 hour or overnight.

  3. STEP 3

    Heat oven to 375°F.

  4. STEP 4

    Bake meatballs 18-20 minutes or until internal temperature reaches at least 160°F and meat is no longer pink in center. Serve immediately with warm marinara sauce.

Tip #1

- Refrigerating meatballs helps prevent cheese from melting during baking.

Tip #2

- Insert frilled toothpicks into each meatball. Arrange on platter with bowl of warm marinara sauce in center.
