Thanks for sharing this fantastic variation on meatballs. My family loves meatballs in general but I get tired of cooking the same thing over and over again. I used Italian Bread Crumbs and added a bit of parmesan in the meat mixture (I always do that with mine). I tossed the uncooked meatballs with my sauce into the crockpot and cooked on low all day. The meatballs stayed together, did not ooze cheese and had a very good flavor. I made a double batch and served with spaghetti the first day and made meatball subs the next. I strongly recommend doubling this recipe if you have meatball lovers at your table!

I have to admit I was a bit nervous about the bottled dressing thing... but what the heck? I was searching for something other than my "go to" meatball recipe. Boy was I surprised when even my pickiest eater asked for seconds! I opted to cook the raw meatballs in the crockpot because I was short on time, but they were FABULOUS! Thank you for sharing the recipe! PS. I find that my stuffed meatballs have less chance of "exploding" if the meat and cheese are really cold before I cook them.

These are honestly the best meatballs i have ever made/tasted. This was the first recipe i tried from recipezaar and it is still one of my favorites. Even my boyfriend was raving to his friends about these meatballs. LOL
