Mozzarella-Stuffed Meatball Sliders | How to be Awesome on $20 a Day

If you follow me on Instagram, you know we’ve got a new mess maker living in our house. Within eight hours of moving in, she smashed the glass in our living room door and peed on the rug on which I do my yoga. Right where my face would go when I’m in downward dog. I doubt she did it for irony.

Eevee is our mystery-breed rescue puppy, and if you know me at all, you know she was not my idea. I know a lot of you will judge me for not being a dog person. I’m an introvert who finds pleasure in a certain level of order, routine, and general chillness. Dogs are rambunctious, messy, and constantly want to interact. And by constantly, I mean chasing a ball basically non-stop since she got here. If I don’t qualify as a cat person, no one does.

To comfort myself through this new upheaval, I’m going to need a lot of cheese. These meatballs each have a chunk of fresh mozzarella hidden inside.  You can use your favorite jarred or homemade tomato sauce to bake them in. Other than a little light assembly, these really couldn’t be simpler.

I like to serve these on a soft roll, but you can do ’em up any way you like. They’d be great as a meatball sub, or serve with spaghetti. Mozzarella-Stuffed Meatballs are fantastic, sliders or no.

Ingredients
  1. 1 pound ground beef
  2. 1 egg
  3. 1 tablespoon olive oil
  4. 1/3 cup shaved parmesan cheese
  5. 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  6. 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  7. 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  8. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  9. 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  10. 1/4 cup panko breadcrumbs
  11. 4 ounces mozzarella cheese, cut into small cubes
  12. 2 cups of your favorite pasta sauce
  13. Your favorite soft rolls
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and lightly spray a casserole or baking dish with non-stick spray.
  2. In a large bowl, combine beef, egg, oil, parmesan, seasonings, and breadcrumbs. Use your hands to mix the ingredients gently so that you don't overwork the meat.
  3. Form the meat mixture into golfball size meatballs, burying and completely surrounding a cube of mozzarella in each one.
  4. Pour about 1 to 1-1/2 cups of your pasta sauce into your baking pan. Make sure it covers the bottom. Place meatballs in pan, add more pasta sauce over the top, sprinkle with remaining mozzarella and a bit more parmesan if you have it.
  5. Bake for about 30 minutes or until meatballs are cooked through. Allow the dish to cool long enough for the sauce to stop acting like molten lava.
  6. Scoop meatballs, with some extra cheesy sauce, onto a roll, and go to town.

Mini Cheddar Meatloaves | How to be Awesome on $20 a Day

This past winter was nothing but hygge, hygge, hygge. We were all about comfort, and I was feeling it. Just because spring is here, I’m not about to let go of that feeling of warmth and comfort. I’m burning candles with bright, citrusy scents. I’m keeping my throw blankets handy when the temperature dips in the evening. And I’m making my very favorite comfort foods. Who’s gonna stop me?

Mini Cheddar Meatloaves | How to be Awesome on $20 a Day

The meatloaf evangelist is back. I’m not about to apologize because I wish I was eating this meatloaf right now. Each individual portion is studded with shredded cheddar cheese, and that glaze is everything. It’s a little bit sweet and a little bit sour, and I want to swim in it.

This mixture is very wet before going into the oven, so it. stays moist and tender. Serving up individual-sized portions means everyone gets plenty of glaze, plenty of crunch, and plenty of goodness. I’m seriously making myself so hungry right now. Serve this up with ranch mashed potatoes, and everyone will be so happy.
