Stuffed Meatballs

Makes 20 meatballs

Prep time: 25 minutes

Cook time: 23 minutes


¼ cup finely ground breadcrumbs (made from hamburger buns)

¼ cup reduced-fat milk

¾ pound ground lamb

¾ pound ground pork

¼ cup fresh flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped

1 ½ teaspoons fresh thyme leaves

1 teaspoon fresh oregano leaves, finely chopped

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1 ½ ounces fresh goat cheese


Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Mix the breadcrumbs and milk together in a small bowl. Set aside to soak for 5 minutes. Mix the breadcrumb-milk mixture, lamb , pork, parsley, thyme, oregano, garlic powder, and salt together in a large bowl until well combined. Shape the meat into 20 golf ball-size meatballs. Poke a small hole in the center of each meatball and push approximately ¼ teaspoon of the cheese into the center of each one. Reshape the meatballs. Arrange the meatballs on the prepared baking sheet and bake until browned and cooked through, about 23 minutes. Cool the meatballs for 5 minutes, arrange the meatballs on a platter and serve immediately.
