Sometimes you can impress using the simplest and most common ingredients – like these stuffed meatballs:
- Portuguese sausage with mozzarella
- Kalua pork with swiss cheese
- Andouille sausage with cheddar
Sauté the onion in 1 tablespoon oil until softened, add rolled oats and let cool. Combine with ground beef, parsley and Italian seasoning. Prepare fillings by browning them separately in a frying pan and drain on a paper towel. Toss together the meat and cheese in three separate bowls. To make each meatball, portion out the meat into 9 portions, then press your thumb into the center to create a hole, fill with 1/3 of each filling and pinch together, the last step being to roll into a ball.
Pre-heat oven to 400° F. Place finished meatballs onto a large baking sheet prepared with non-stick spray. Bake for approximately 15 minutes, or until a thermometer inserted into the center reads 160° F. Serve with the BBQ sauce as a dipping sauce.
