  • 1 lb ground turkey or beef
  • 1/2 cup Goldfish® crackers
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 sticks of cheddar string cheese cut into fourths

Fire Roasted Tomato & Garlic Sauce

  • 1 can of fire roasted diced tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 4 oz can tomato sauce


Meatball Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  6. Take about 1/4 cup of the meat mixture and form it into a patty and then add the piece of cheese to the center and gently fold up and roll into a ball.
  7. Continue rolling meatballs until the meat mixture is all used up.
  8. Place in a baking dish and bake for about 15 minutes, until the temperature inside a meatball reaches 165 degrees for ground turkey, or 160 degrees for ground beef.
  9. While the meatballs are cooking, make the sauce.

Sauce Instructions

  1. Over medium low heat combine the fire roasted diced tomatoes, garlic, and tomato sauce.
  2. Allow to simmer while meatballs are cooking.
