Ingredients

  • 1 cup of Fresh Creations® Spinach Parmesan & Bacon Dip
  • 1 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese
  • ½ lb ground beef
  • ½ lb ground pork
  • 1 large egg
  • ¼ cup parsley
  • ½ cup Italian breadcrumbs
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • 2 cups marinara sauce
  • mashed potatoes or cooked fettuccine pasta

Instructions

  1. Mix dip with mozzarella.
  2. Mix ground beef, pork, egg, parsley, breadcrumbs, salt and pepper until combined. Make a golf ball-sized handful of meatball mixture and press flat in the palm of your hand. Place a spoonful of the dip mixture in the center of the meat and fold the edges over the dip, sealing it and rolling into a ball. Repeat with the remaining meat and dip.
  3. Sear the meatballs in a pan over medium-high heat for about a minute, then turn. Add the marinara sauce and cook for about 15 minutes until meatballs are cooked through and sauce is thick. Serve over potatoes or pasta. Makes 15-18 meatballs.
