Pizza Meatballs


2 pounds ground beef
2 cups seasoned bread crumbs
1 cup milk
1/4 cup dried minced onion
2 tsp. garlic salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
8 ounces mozzarella cheese
1/3 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup cooking oil
2 jars (28 ounces each) pizza or sauce

In a bowl, combine the first six ingredients just until mixed. Shape into 48 small meatballs. Cut mozzarella into 48 cubes, 1/2 inch. Push a cube into the center of each meatball, covering the cheese completely with meat. Roll lightly in flour.
In a large skillet, cook meatballs in oil until browned. Drain. Add sauce and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 25 to 30 minutes or until meatballs are no longer pink.

Or place raw meatballs in crockpot. Pour sauce over meatballs and cook 6-8 hours until done on low.

Serve over rice.
