Pizza Meatballs

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Judy from Hawaii

These are large meatballs, with melted mozzarella in the middle, a real kid pleaser. Flatten the meatball mixture into a flat disc, put the cheese cube in the middle & bring the meat edges up around it & press to seal. After a (deserved) 3 star review, I made a change in the type & am't of filler & the result is a much improved meatball.

We loved this recipe. DH even took leftovers as a Meatball Sub for his lunch today. Only change I would make would be to use fresh onions next time and maybe a little fresh garlic. Thanks for the great recipe.
