This recipe calls for cheddar cheese, however use whatever your favorite cheese may be! Mozzarella or a spicy jalapeno monterey jack cheese would be equally delicious! Use what you crave or what you have on hand and you won’t go wrong!

I love the addition of fried onions in this recipe but if you do not happen to have them on hand, you can simply use onion soup mix as a replacement.  If you have fussy eaters who are not onion fans, just omit the fried onion and use 1 tsp. onion powder in the meat mixture for flavour. Both are great substitutions which work well.

  1. I used turkey burger and added bread crumbs. Turned out great.

  2. Would it be possible to make these ahead and reheat them? I would like to meet them for a new mother in our church and take them to her and let her reheat them when she’s ready to eat them.

    • While I haven’t reheated them, I think that would be perfectly fine! Enjoy Paula! You’re so thoughtful 🙂

  3. 5 stars

  4. May I ask if the 440 Calories is just 1 meatball?

  5. I like to mix the shredded cheese into the meatballs, and wrap them around apiece of pickle. Tonight I am adding diced banana peppers. Yummy!

  6. I will be making these for the FSU-ALA game Saturday!

  7. That should be “cheddar”, not “cheedar”.

  8. I wonder if you could mix in shredded cheddar instead of stuffing the cubes, like I do for our sausage balls at the holidays, which uses Bisquick mix and ground sausage?

  9. What can you make for a side go with them

  10. I have these in the oven now! Making the house smell AMAZING! AM-I got 15 meatballs out of this recipe!!

  11. This looks yummy! Can you please let me know how many meat balls you get out from this recipe?
