Slow Cooker Cheese Stuffed Meatballs
If I had to pick a favorite food it would be cheese. When you add cheese to pretty much any meal it just makes it taste better. When I decided to join two of my good blogger friends for a slow cooker challenge, I knew I would make my special meatballs. Even though I am on Weight Watchers I can still enjoy the foods I love..just less of them.
- Sharp cheddar cheese chunked into little 1/2 thick squares
- 85% Lean Hamburger
- 1 Cup Italian Breadcrumbs
- 1/4 cup honey mustard
- 1/4 ketchup
- 1 egg
- chopped onion
- salt & pepper
- Slow cooker
- baking sheet
- parchment paper
- wax paper
In a mixing bowl add all of the above ingredients
Knead your hamburger meat until thoroughly mixed.
Form your meat into one large lump
Line a baking sheet with non-stick foil, or parchment paper
Set aside a clean area, and lay out a good size piece of wax paper to make your meat ball on
Form large balls with your meat, and place them on your wax paper
I would go larger than traditional meatballs because these will be cheese stuffed, and will shrink
After all your balls are formed flatten them
Add one cube of cheese to each little flatten patty
Rework your meat into balls making sure to keep the cheese in the middle
Place your meatballs in on your baking sheet, and flash cook them for 10 mins. at 350 to form a crust.
Remove them from the oven and place them in your slow cooker for 1 hour on low
Enjoy!! These were the best meatballs I have ever eaten!! My kids never eat all their dinner, but they sure did eat all their stuffed meatballs. You could also stuff these with pepperoni, and cheese making them even yummier! These meatballs would make the perfect a quick meal idea!!
