Recipe Intro From bazaarlazarr
I love cheese! Taking my meatball recipe from my slider recipe and adding the gooey goodness of fresh mozzarella, these are a total crowd pleaser of giant meatball proportions!
It's Saucy Saturday and the cheese is back! Turned my meatball sub recipe from the Meatball Feed on @thefeedfeed into mozzarella stuffed meatballs and spaghetti with spicy vodka sauce and torn basil! Used my @5280meat ground beef, and stuffed each meatball with a little fresh ciliegine mozzarella ball! Delicioso! Can we also just talk about this cheese pull?! -@bazaarlazarr
