    Marie's Note:

    Found this on the Food Network and they sound wonderful and very different. However, I did increase the amount of meat in this recipe. The meatball ingredients are mixed, then rolled into balls and a small piece of fresh mozzarella is tucked inside before frying. Great for adding to tomato sauce when making pasta.

      My friends eat these up as they come out of the pan, before I'm done frying the whole batch.
