Baked Meatballs with Potato Filling

I found a new way of cooking meatballs. Rather than frying or throwing them in a boiling pot of sauce, I'd pop them in the oven and baked until golden brown. I have to be honest here, though, that this is not my personal idea. I just saw this from a random channel in YouTube and I thought I would give it a try. Hubby loves meatballs as much as he loves pasta dishes. So, here we go.

There are 3 major procedures to follow in making this meatball recipe. First is to prepare the meatballs, second is to cook the filling, and lastly is to ready the topping. Here are the list of ingredients.

For the Meatballs:
300 grams ground meat (either pork, meat, beef or combination)
1/4 cup bread crumbs
1 small carrot, shredded
1 red bell pepper, finely chopped
1 red onion, finely chopped
3 cloves of garlic, grated
1 large egg, beaten
1 tsp freshly cracked black pepper
salt to taste

For the Mashed Potato Filling:
4 medium sized potatoes, boiled and mashed
1 white onion, chopped
2 tbsp butter

For the Topping:
2 cups grated mozzarella cheese
4 tbsp tomato sauce
1/2 cup water


-Combine all the ingredients for the meatballs. Mix well.
-Form into small bowls. Arrange in a baking dish. Bake for 8 minutes. Set aside.
-Saute onions in butter until light brown. Add mashed potatoes. Mix well.
-Fill each meatballs with mashed potatoes then top it with cheese.
-Mix tomato sauce with water, then drench the meatballs with the mixture.
-Bake the meatballs for 5 more minutes or until the cheese melted. Serve.

The result of this recipe is cheesy and delicious meatballs. This is perfect as an appetizer or a side dish. A great addition to your holiday menu. Try it!
