The Laughing Cow Mega-Meatballs

AuthorJulie

1 lb ground bison, lean ground beef or turkey
1 lb mild or spicy Italian sausage (or just use more bison, beef or turkey)
1 slice sandwich bread, whizzed into crumbs
1/4-1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 large egg
salt and pepper, to taste
olive or canola oil, for cooking
8-12 wedges of The Laughing Cow cheese, unwrapped

1

In a large bowl, combine the ground meats, breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, egg, salt and pepper with your hands, mixing just until blended but not overworking it, which could result in tough meatballs.

2

Shape small handfuls (as much as you’d use for a small burger) of the mixture around each wedge of cheese, pressing to seal any gaps and make smooth meatballs about the size of a small orange. Preheat the oven to 350°F.

3

In a large, heavy, preferably ovenproof skillet, heat a drizzle of oil over medium-high heat. Add the meatballs in batches and brown, rolling them around as you need to until they are golden and crispy on all sides. Transfer them to a plate while you finish browning all the meatballs, then return them all to the pan or transfer to a 9”x13” baking dish and bake for 20-30 minutes, just until cooked through. Serve on spaghetti or in soft rolls, with warmed tomato sauce.
