Mozzarella Stuffed Meatballs

I'm always looking for ways to spice up a classic.  This definitely fit that criteria!  They were very tasty, and they made enough that I could freeze half for another meal, always a bonus :)  I changed this recipe just a bit from See Jane In the Kitchen.

1 pound lean ground beef
1 pound ground italian pork
2 Tablespoons dried or fresh parsley
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
salt and pepper
2 eggs
1 cup bread crumbs (I used Italian)
8 ounce package mozzarella, cut into small cubes (about 1/4 inch in size)

Mix all ingredients and form into walnut sized balls, forming meat around cheese cube. Cook in olive oil in a large pan. Try to be gentle, the cheese tends to ooze out if you turn too much. Serve over pasta and marinara. Top with parmesan.

This makes about 2 1/2 dozen meatballs. They said these meatballs freeze well, so I cooked them all and froze over half of them.  We'll see if they are good after freezing!
