Ingredients

1/4 cup plain breadcrumbs
1/2 cup milk (or water)
2 cloves minced garlic
1 pound lean ground beef
2 Tbls chopped, fresh, flat-leaf parsley
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
1 large egg
1 tsp salt
4 ounces mozzarella cheese (cut into 20 - 1/2" cubes) (I end up using most of a 8oz block)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.


In a medium bowl, soak the breadcrumbs in the milk.


Add the beef, garlic, parsley, parmesan cheese, egg and 1 tsp salt to the soaked breadcrumbs and stir with a fork until combined.


Place about 2 Tbls of mixture in your hand and press a mozzarella cube into the center. Shape the meat around the cheese, forming a ball. Repeat with remaining mozzarella.


Cook at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes.
