Friday, May 11, 2012 Spicy Smoked Mozzarella Meatballs

Where has the month of June gone? or May for that matter.... somehow the days have blended and sadly my little blog has suffered. Here we are in July and it may look like I went on a cooking & baking rampage but even without posting the cooking and picture taking never stops. Here's a little something I made with a friend May 9th, a little something from Giada and it was delicious. (PS - I've learned how to Post Date Blog Entries)

1 Small Onion, Diced
1/2 Cup Parsley, plus 1/4 cup
2/3 Cup Parmesan Cheese, plus 1/4 cup
1/3 Cup Bread Crumbs
1 Egg
2 Tbsp Ketchup
3 Garlic Cloves, Minced
1/4 tsp Red Pepper Flakes
1 tsp Salt, plus more for seasoning
1/2 tsp Black Pepper, plus more for seasoning
16 oz. Ground Turkey
2 oz. Mozzarella Cheese, Cut into 16 (1/2-inch) Cubes

Position an oven rack in the lower 1/3 of the oven. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

In a large bowl, combine the Onion, 1/2 cup Parsley, 2/3 cup Parmesan, Bread Crumbs, Egg, Ketchup, Garlic, Red Pepper Flakes, 1 tsp Salt, and 1/2 tsp Pepper. Add the Turkey. Using your hands, combine all ingredients gently but thoroughly. Shape the meat mixture into 16 (1 1/2-inch-diameter) Meatballs and place on the prepared baking sheet. Make a hole in the center of each Meatball and place a cube of Mozzarella inside. Reform the Meatball so that the Mozzarella is completely covered with the meat mixture. Bake the meatballs for 15 minutes until cooked through.
