So, I’m the first person to admit we all need a little eating in AND a little eating out and since I’m a bit of a (self-proclaimed) foodie there was no chance I’d get too many posts in without a recipe or restaurant review. With that said, one is just the beginning…
Easy and Meaty Sausage and Mozzarella Meatballs
Recipe courtesy of Rachel Ray and revamped to fit me :)
- 1 pounds Italian turkey sausage, bulk if available
- 6 bocconicina balls (bite size fresh mozzarella in water)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Remove 6 pieces of bite sized mozzarella from the water and set on work surface. Remove sausages from casings, if bulk not available, and place in a bowl.
Combine the meat into a single mound then score it into 2 sections. Each section will yield 3 large sausage meatballs.
To form each ball, take a handful of meat and wrap it around a piece of mozzarella. Roll 12 balls.
Coat balls with a drizzle of olive oil.
Bake 18 to 20 minutes until cooked through and evenly browned.
Serve with your favorite sauce (ya know? Fresh and Easy tomato alfredo, ya that one).
Bonus: side dish coming tomorrow
