In our house, we are cheese fanatics. Usually, any dish loaded with cheese is a hit. These cheese stuffed meatballs were no exception.
The turkey was packed with flavour with the addition of pesto and the ooey gooey bocconcini centre was a very pleasant surprise. I used the Trestelle Bocconcini* which were the perfect size to wrap the flavourful meat around. (Please excuse Q’s fuzzy picture.)
The meatballs were cooked and tossed into our favourite marinara sauce. The boys ate theirs with pasta while I chose to eat my meatballs with a runny egg. So tasty!
Cheese Stuffed Turkey Meatballs
1 pound ground turkey
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
1/4 cup bread crumbs
1 TB minced garlic
1 TB pesto
1/4 red onion, finely chopped
Combine the turkey with the cheese, crumbs, garlic, pesto egg and onions. Divide the meat into 12 balls. Form the meat around the bocconcini. Pan fry until cooked. Add some marinara sauce and enjoy with pasta (or an egg!).
*I did receive vouchers from Trestelle to try out their cheese. Opinions are my own.
