While we love a good meatloaf, sometimes you need to try something a little different, this cheese stuffed Meatloaf in a tomato based sauce is sure to please.
Cheese Stuffed Meatloaf Balls with Pasta Sauce
2 pounds of grass fed lean beef
4 1 inch by 1 inch solid cheese of your choice, I used homemade cheese but Mozza would be good.
1 tsp of your choice of favorite Herb Blends you like for meat.. or if you do not have a blend, start with Salt, Pepper, Chili flakes, Garlic powder, Onion Powder, Basil and Celery Seed..
3 cups of your choice of Pasta sauce, In my case I went with chunky Basil, if you are home canning, this is a one liter jar of pasta sauce.
Prepare your cheese into your cubes, set to the side.
In a clean bowl, put your meat, eggs, spices and blend well till it holds its shape nicely in a ball, then split into four equal size balls, flatten the middle and put your cheese in and pull the meat over the cheese and close it up..
In a good cast iron pot or any another good heavy pot you use for the oven, put a layer of the sauce down.. lay your half pound stuffed meatballs down into the pot, pour the rest of your sauce around them, then take a little more seasoning (in my case it was montreal steak spice) and sprinkle on top of the meat. Cover and bake 55 to 65 min at 350
Now if you are low carb, can be served with the Cheese Stuffed Meatball an sauce with a lovely side salad.. but if you are eating carbs, you could put some potato’s in there, or rice or a little bit of pasta..
