  • 1 lb. 93% lean ground beef
  • 1 small onion finely diced or grated
  • 1 egg
  • c. grated Parmesan
  • ¼ c. quick oats
  • 2 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 lb. Havarti cheese cut into 1/2" cubes
  • 24 oz. pasta sauce


  • In a medium bowl, using your hands, combine the ground beef, half of the onion, egg Parmesan, oats, Dijon, paprika and salt. Once the mixture is evenly distributed, form small 1 inch meatballs.
  • Press a 1/2" cube of the cheese into the center of each meatball and roll the meatball, so the cheese is completely covered with meat mixture.
  • Once all of the meatballs are formed, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat in a large skillet. Arrange the meatballs in the skillet and cook for 4-5 minutes, rotating every minute so each side is browned. Add the pasta sauce to the skillet and simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Serve with mashed potatoes, rice or pasta.
