Just a little tidbit here...
Though the hubby isn't a fan of meatballs, my son can't seem to get enough of them. What makes them even better for him, is when there is cheese hidden inside. :0)
Just make your regular meatball recipe, except as you are forming the balls, place a small slice of string cheese inside and wrap the meat around it. If you chop the string cheese the "short" way, you can make several meatballs out of just one stick of cheese. When you cook the meatballs it melts the cheese on the inside and adds a little something "extra".
Just thought I'd share.
