Ok, so if you mix cheese with meatballs, that’s heaven right there. Right? But then if you sandwich those cheesy meatballs, topped with more cheese, between buttered bread . . . absolute mind-blowing! So, if you’re not attached to your mind and don’t care if it gets “blown” . . . dig in!!
1 lb. ground hamburger
2 slices bread, crumbed
1/2 c grated parmesan cheese
salt and pepper to taste
4 mozzarella string cheese sticks
1-2 T butter or margarine
buttered bread and grated mozzarella cheese, optional
Slice each cheese stick into 6 pieces. Set aside. Mix hamburger, egg, bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, and salt and pepper until blended. Flatten a 1-inch scoop of meatball mixture. Place cheese piece in center and fold meat up around it, making a ball around the cheese. Repeat until meatball mixture is gone. Place meatballs in GENEROUSLY buttered glass dish. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes or until bubbly and browned. Serve immediately. Preferably between buttered bread, topped with mozzarella cheese. Refrigerate leftovers, if there are any!
