These are awesome! What’s better than a flavored ball of meat that oozes cheese in the middle? Not much.
- 1 lb lean ground sirloin
- 2/3 package low sodium taco seasoning
- 1 green onion finely diced
- 1 egg
- 1 clove of garlic, minced
- 1 block reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese, cut into cubes
Preheat the oven to 425F. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except cheese.
Once mixed, take a tablespoon amount of meat and divide it in two. Place a cube of cheese in between the two pieces of meat and form around the cheese in a ball form. Try to fully conceal the meat inside for minimal cheese leakage when cook. The recipe called for an entire block of cheese. I used large cubes of cheese and still only used about 1/3 of the block of cheese and the balls were sufficiently cheesy.
Once formed into a ball, place on a rimmed baking sheet.
Bake for 7-10 minutes.
These would make excellent party appetizers, in a wrap, a taco meatball sub or on a salad…as I ate a few of them(with some of my mom’s homemade salsa).
