How to make Cheddar Stuffed Meatballs?

These meatballs are very easy to make. Simply combine the meat, seasonings, eggs and breadcrumbs in a mixing bowl. Refrigerate the meatball mixture for 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, slice the cheddar into 24 small cubes. Take a spoonful of the meatball mix, spread it flat in your palm, place a cheese cube in the center and wrap the meatball around the cheese. Squeeze a little so you really get the cheese in the patties, otherwise it will leak out as you cook them. Cook or air fry the patties according to the instructions below.
