    YUMMY YUMMY meatballs you'll love these (TIP I like to do the sauce on the stove top takes about 15 min rather then the 1.5 hours in the slowcooker)

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a flat baking sheet with parchment paper.
    2. 2
      In a large bowl add ground beef, onion powder, egg, bread crumbs, garlic, Worcestershire, salt, pepper, couple dashes of Italian seasoning. Mix thoroughly. Shape into 1-inch balls. Push in to the mixture a cube of cheese. Reshape the meatball. Place on lined baking sheet. Do this until all of the meatballs have been formed.
    3. 3
      Bake in the oven until browned, about 15 to 20 minutes. If the cheese cube that was used is too big it will melt out of the meatball.
    4. 4
      In a slow cooker, on medium heat add the tomato sauce, crushed tomatoes, Italian seasonings (to taste) onion, and garlic. Keep hot while the meatballs cook. Add the meatballs once they are done cooking. Serve with toothpicks. The sauce can be heated on stove top.

      Awesome! Picture does not do these justice at all. I cooked my meatballs in the oven and did not use slowcooker. Also leaving out the bread crumbs for a lower carb meal. I served these with Italian green beans. Sauce is delish!

      Sheesh, I didn't even finish making the sauce for these, and I realized that DH was secretly snagging the meatballs from the pan on the countertop whenever he'd walk by! That's a pretty big complement, since DH usually wrinkles his nose at ground beef stuff (meatloaf, meatballs, etc.). I had to improvise a bit for the sauce portion, since I didn't realize before I started making these that I had no canned tomato sauce or crushed tomatoes. I did have a couple jars of fresh-canned tomatoes from the landlord's garden, so I used those instead. After the sauce cooked for a bit, I just pureed the sauce with my stick blender and stirred in a bit of tomato paste. The sauce was good, but not very pizza-esque, so next time I'll make sure I have the right tomato products on hand. Good stuff, thanks for posting! Made for PAC Spring 2012
