Cheddar-Stuffed Meatballs

Cheddar-Stuffed Meatballs

I had some ingredients left over from making my Bacon and Cheese Meatloaf and decided to try a different spin! I baked up these cheese-stuffed meatballs and they were delicious! I like them as-is with a little ketchup, but they're also great in between slider buns or hamburger buns (depending on how big you make your meatballs). Add a little ketchup or barbecue sauce to your bun, maybe some tomatoes, lettuce and/or onions, and you are set! Enjoy!


Makes 14-16 Meatballs


  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.

  2. Combine the meat, soup mix, eggs, breadcrumbs and the barbecue sauce in a bowl. Mix together well.

  3. To make the meatballs, take a good amount of the meat mixture in your hand—enough to cover your palm when pressed into a patty. Insert ¼ of a cheese slice, crumbled or folded, into the middle of the patty. Roll the meat into a ball, keeping the cheese in the middle of the ball. Repeat until you’ve used up all the meat. (Depending on the size of the meatballs, you may not use up all the cheese).

  4. Bake for 45 minutes. Let rest for 10-15 minutes and then serve as is with your favorite condiment or serve as a sandwich in a slider or hamburger bun!
