DIRECTIONS

  • Cut each string cheese into 8 equal pieces - freeze until time to form meatballs.
  • Preheat oven to 500°F.
  • Combine beef, breadcrumbs, milk, eggs, onion, garlic, salt and pepper in large bowl.
  • Shape into 1 to 1 1/2 inch meatballs, around each piece of frozen mozzarella. Seal meatballs well to keep cheese from oozing out.
  • Mix sauce ingredients together and set aside.
  • Place meatballs closely together on lightly greased broiler pans or rimmed baking sheets. Bake for 15 minutes and cool (if planning to freeze); around 30 minutes if planning to eat right away.
  • Add sauce to last 15 minutes of baking if cooking that day. If freezing meatballs, add sauce to freezer bag and add cooked, cooled meatballs to it.
  • If cooking after freezing - thaw completely.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Pour meatballs and sauce into ungreased baking dish. Bake uncovered for 30 minutes or until meatballs are heated through. Serve over rice or noodles.
