Easy Mozzarella Stuffed Meatballs Recipe

Easy Mozzarella Stuffed Meatballs Recipe – These are amazing! I had to skip the Parmesan as I didn't have any on hand, but it turned out delicious anyway. I also only had 1/2 cup plain breadcrumbs left, so I added 1/4 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs. My kids gobbled them up. Easy Mozzarella Stuffed Meatballs Recipe were also very fast and easy to make, and I only had three out of 26 that oozed some cheese, and only very little.

  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano

  • 6 ounces mozzarella cheese, cut into ½ inch cubes
