How To Make Taco Cheese Stuffed Meatballs
Step 1: Mix meatball ingredients together until just combined. Do not over-mix.
Step 2: Scoop out 4 tablespoons of beef mixture, flatten then place cheese cube into the center. Bring the edges together to form a ball. Ensure that the meatball is completely sealed. *PRO TIP* Freeze the cheese first to prevent any oozing during the baking.
Step 3: Freeze meatballs on a rimmed sheet pan to ensure they remain round.
Step 4: Broil on high.
How Long Do You Bake Stuffed Meatballs
Okay, so these meatballs aren’t necessarily baked. These meatballs are broiled on high for 10-12 minutes. This method cooks them quickly and also achieves that nice crust on the outside.
Can You Freeze Cheese Stuffed Meatballs
Yes. Make extra meatballs to freeze, double or triple this recipe. Transfer extra meatballs to a rimmed baking sheet and freeze completely. Then transfer frozen meatballs to a ziploc bag or container.
