Ingredients

1
egg, beaten
1
lb bulk sweet Italian pork sausage
1/4
cup finely chopped onion
1/4
cup Progresso™ plain bread crumbs
1/4
cup whole milk
4
large fresh basil leaves, coarsely chopped
1
clove garlic, finely chopped
8
oz fresh mozzarella cheese, cut into 27 small cubes

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Spray cookie sheet with sides or shallow baking pan with cooking spray, or line with silicone baking mat.
  • 2 In large bowl, mix all ingredients except cheese. Using small cookie scoop (about 1 tablespoon), scoop out 27 meatballs onto cookie sheet.
  • 3 Insert 1 cheese cube into center of each meatball; shape sausage mixture around cheese to completely cover.
  • 4 Bake about 20 minutes or until meatballs are no longer pink near center.

Expert Tips

Using a cookie scoop ensures that all of your meatballs are the same size and therefore cook at the same rate.

If you do not have a cookie scoop, you can substitute a tablespoon spoon.

If you can not find sausage without casings, simply remove the sausage from the casing links prior to using.
