  • Method: Baked
  • Cuisine: American


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/3 cup shaved parmesan cheese
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 4 ounces mozzarella cheese, cut into small cubes
  • 2 cups of your favorite pasta sauce
  • Your favorite soft rolls


  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.
