Sartori Cheese Stuffed Meatballs

We received a wonderful gift pack of samples from Sartori Cheese, sponsor of this week's #Foodiechats on Twitter! 7 cheeses were carefully taste tested, including Gorgonzola, Extra Aged Goat and several Bellavitanos... Rosemary Olive Oil Asiago came out on top! Here's what I did with it:



1 lbs Ground Venison *
1/2 Block Fave Sartori Cheese, cubed
1 tsp. Onion Powder
1/2 tsp. Garlic Powder
1 1/2 tsp. Italian Seasoning
1/2 tsp. Oregano
1/2 c. Italian Bread Crumbs
1 1/2 Tbsp. Worcestershire
1/4 c. Milk
Seasoned Salt, Cracked Black Pepper to taste

*Can be substituted for ground turkey or beef.

PREPARATION:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix dry ingredients into meat, then add wet ingredients, mix thoroughly. Form meat around cheese cubes into tablespoon sized balls and place on a cookie sheet. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until inside is no longer pink. Makes appx. 18 meatballs.

Can be made ahead of time and frozen.
