When meatballs are on the menu, you know you're in for a homey, comforting meal. But when those meatballs are stuffed with mozzarella, well, I'd say you've just taken dinner to a whole new level.

Now, before you worry that stuffing cheese inside meatballs leans a bit too decadent, let me add that these particular meatballs are made with ground chicken instead of beef. So it all evens out in the end, right?

After you mix your meatball ingredients, you take tablespoons of the mixture and add a cube of mozzarella to the center. With wet hands (to prevent sticking!), shape the mixture around the mozzarella into a ball. It's as easy as that!

The author provides a simple recipe for homemade tomato sauce, but feel free to use your favorite store-bought sauce if that's easier for you. All that matters is that it tastes good to you, because you're going to simmer the meatballs in it.

Once your meatballs are done, serve them over pasta or with some crusty bread for dunking. And because you can't go wrong with a little more cheese, sprinkle some grated Parmesan over everything before eating.
