Goat Cheese Stuffed Spicy Meatballs

Here’s another exciting & very tasty recipe for spicy meatballs.

4 lb 80/20 ground beef
2 lb pork sausage
3/4 cup Italian breadcrumbs
2 tsp salt
2 tsp pepper
2 tsp dired basil
2 tsp dried oregano
5 cloves garlic, peeled & chopped
2 eggs
2 tsp Formato Brothers Hot Pepper Spread (drain excess oil)
5 oz goat cheese for stuffing into meatballs once they are thoroughly mixed

Mix all ingredients together.  Use your hands….it’s therapeutic.  : )

Roll about 2 Tblsp into palm of hand, with your thumb press down to create a space to accommodate 1/2 tsp of goat cheese.  Use a small measuring spoon to be consistent.

Place on a rack on a baking sheet in a preheated 350 degree oven.  Bake for 25 minutes until brown.

Or….fry in canola or vegetable oil at 360 degrees turning over after a minute or so until brown.  Then place on a metal rack to drain off excess oil.

Enjoy!
