Baked Mozzarella Stuffed Meatballs

1 lb ground beef

1/4 cup breadcrumbs

1 egg

1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1 tsp Italian seasoning

Salt and pepper, to taste

1/2 cup diced mozzarella cheese

1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

1/4 cup marinara sauce

Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C) and line a baking sheet with foil.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground beef, breadcrumbs, egg, Parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Mix well until everything is evenly distributed.

Take a small amount of the meat mixture and flatten it in your palm. Place a small amount of diced mozzarella cheese in the center and form the meat mixture around it, rolling it into a ball. Repeat this process with the rest of the meat mixture.

Place the meatballs on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes or until cooked through.

Remove from the oven and top with marinara sauce and chopped parsley.
