Mozzarella Stuffed Meatballs

Mozzarella stuffed meatballs are a fun and delicious twist on a classic dish the whole family will love! Serve them over pasta for a winning dinner, or make them mini for the ultimate holiday appetizer.

Yield: 12 Meatballs


  • 1 1/4 pound ground turkey
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 onion finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped flat lead parsley
  • 1/2 cup Italian style bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 8 ounces part-skim mozzarella cheese, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 (24-ounce) jar marinara sauce


  1. Combine turkey, egg, onion, garlic, salt, pepper, parsley, breadcrumbs, Parmesan, and milk in a bowl. Form into 12 (1 and 1/2”) meatballs and stuff each with a cube of cheese, making sure to seal the edges.
  2. Heat olive oil in a Farberware Classic Series Skillet over medium heat. Add meatballs and cook for about 5-7 minutes, until brown on all sides. Reduce heat to medium-low and slowly add marinara sauce. Simmer meatballs until cooked through, turning occasionally, about 15-20 minutes. Serve over pasta and garnish with parsley and Parmesan cheese, if desired.

Turn these into the ultimate holiday appetizer by making 24 meatballs instead of 12, and cutting the cheese into 1/4-inch cubes.
