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.


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.
