Cheddar stuffed meatballs

Cheddar stuffed meatballs

Stuffed meatballs are nothing new. I used to do them a lot a while ago, also some very decadent with meat stuffed meatballs (veeeery decadent indeed). I had a little bit of ground beef left and I thought, why not make meatballs again? and,   as “With cheddar, it all gets better”, I thought to stuff them with this lovely cheese.


  • ground beef (or beef mixed with pork)
  • cheddar
  • rosemary
  • lemon zest
  • chillies
  • salt&pepper
  • breadcrumbs
  • egg
  • flour


  1. first of all you grate the cheese, chop some rosemary and some chillies and mix them together, forming some little balls;
  2. then you prepare the meatballs, mixing the meat with some lemon zest, breadcrumbs, rosemary, salt&pepper, an egg (or part of an egg, depending on how much meat you have) and some more chillies;
  3. you take a dollup of meat, pat it in your hand, add the little cheeseball in the middle and close it, making sure that you don’t see any of the cheese;
  4. after that you coat the meatballs in flour, egg (beaten egg with some water) and breadcrumbs and you fry them.
