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

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

Sauce

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

Directions

  1. Spray 13x9-inch baking pan with no-stick cooking spray; set aside.
  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. Heat oven to 375°F.
  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.

Recipe Tips

- Refrigerating meatballs helps prevent cheese from melting during baking.

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