What kid doesn’t like meatballs, let alone meatballs with a cheesy surprise inside? Each meatball has a different cheese. For this recipe, we used 2 types of cheese and there may be 1 or 2 that have no cheese, just to throw them off. Want to know the secret? Ok
3lbs hamburger meat
30 bite sized pieces of your favorite cheeses (assorted)
3 tbsp Chance’s Tomato & Garlic sauce (9 Lazy Kidz)
3 level tbsp minced garlic (I like a bit of extra garlic)
2 dashes of ground black pepper
3 pinches of Oregano
Put the cheese aside. We’ll get to that. Mix all the other ingredients until you have a big mass of meat. Pull off a meatball size piece of hamburger. Before you begin to roll the meatball, place a piece or two of cheese inside the meat and roll until you can’t see or feel the cheese in the meatball.
This should make about 30 meatballs. Place the rolled meatballs in the oven on 350 for 25 minutes (no more or the cheese may start to spill out) There is a method to my madness!
Take the meatballs from the oven (notice no cheese spillage) and directly to your sauce pot (Crock-pot) cook on low until the kids get home and mom makes the pasta. It’s Chance’s sauce and the cheese that make the flavor, that’s the secret. Dad’s done dude!
