  • 1/2 cup (120ml) milk
  • 1/2 cup (50g) grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 ounces (115g) mozzarella cheese, cut into small cubes

Cooking Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground sausage, breadcrumbs, milk, grated Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, onion powder, dried oregano, dried basil, salt, and black pepper. Mix well until all the ingredients are evenly incorporated.
  3. Take a small amount of the sausage mixture (about 2 tablespoons) and flatten it in your palm. Place a cube of mozzarella cheese in the center and shape the sausage mixture into a ball, ensuring the cheese is completely covered. Repeat this process until all the sausage mixture and cheese are used.
  4. Arrange the meatballs on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, leaving some space between each meatball.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until the meatballs are cooked through and golden brown.
  6. Remove the meatballs from the oven and let them rest for a few minutes.
  7. Serve the Cheese-Stuffed Sausage Meatballs with marinara sauce for dipping. Garnish with fresh basil leaves, if desired.
