Ooey, Gooey Cheesy Meatballs

So you wanna know how we know school’s almost out for summer around these parts? When Mom makes two batches of Jello pudding pops for you to have for breakfast, that’s how! In my defense though, they do have milk in them (an essential part of any breakfast. am I right??) and they are sugar free (because I both like and pity their teachers). I’ll currently be accepting ‘Mom of the Year’ award nominations. Breakfast isn’t the only thing we slack at when the school year draws to a close. There’s too much to do, and too many hours in the day to waste slaving away in the kitchen every night.  Helllooo snack suppers!

Ooey, Gooey Cheesy Meatballs

Usually these involve several plates on the table featuring various crackers, nuts, cheeses, veggies, and some oh-so-yummy dips. BUT … There are nights when snack suppers mean totally yummy, not necessarily good for you, we just needed an excuse to eat this and call it a meal, things. I’m pretty sure these meatballs speak for themselves. They’re ooey. They’re gooey. They’re cheesy. And they are friggin delicious!!

Ingredients

  • 1 slice bread
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 small onion grated
  • 1 tablespoon sour cream
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan

Instructions

  • Line a baking sheet with foil; then lightly coat the foil with nonstick spray. In the bowl of a food processor, pulse the bread until they resemble crumbs.
  • Heat a small skillet over medium heat. Add the bread crumbs and toast until golden brown, about 4-5 minutes.
  • In a small bowl, combine the toasted bread crumbs and milk; let stand until all of the milk is absorbed.
  • In a large bowl, add the breadcrumb mixture, ground beef, grated onion, sour cream, egg, salt and pepper. Using a wooden spoon or clean hands, stir until well combined.
  • Roll the mixture into 1 1/4-to-1 1/2-inch meatballs and place on onto prepared baking sheet.
  • Drizzle a small amount of mayonnaise on each meatball. (A squeeze bottle or Ziploc bag is perfect for this.)
  • In a small bowl, combine the mozzarella and Parmesan. Sprinkle each meatball with 1 tablespoon cheese mixture.
  • Bake at 400 degrees until the cheese has melted and is slightly golden brown, about 15-20 minutes. Broil for an additional 2-5 minutes, or until the cheese has crisped up.
