Mozzarella Stuffed Meatballs

1 egg
1/4 cup milk
1 cup *fresh bread crumbs
2 tsp dry parsley
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp basil
1/2 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 pound pork sausage
1/2 pound ground beef
4 mozzarella cheese sticks, each cut into 6 pieces
1 26oz jar spaghetti sauce
Hot cooked pasta

1.Combine first nine ingredients in a large bowl.

2.Add sausage and ground beef and mix well.

3.Shape meat mixture around the cheese cubes.

4.Place meatballs on a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 400° for 25-30 minutes, flipping them over in the pan occasionally so they brown evenly.

5.Heat spaghetti sauce in a large saucepan. Add cooked meatballs. Serve over hot pasta.

*Don’t substituted dry bread crumbs. They will soak up too much liquid and make your meatballs dry. I just took a slice of bread and ground it up in my food processor. A blender would work fine too.
* Makes 13 giant meatballs
