  • 1.5 lbs Ground Beef I prefer 90/10
  • 1/4 cup Heavy Cream
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1.5 teaspoons Lawry's seasoned salt
  • 1 tablespoon Dried Oregano
  • 1/2 cup Panko Bread crumbs
  • 6 ounces Smoked Gouda Cheese cut into 1/4" cubes
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  1. Preheat oven to 350*
  2. Using a wooden spoon or your hands in a large bowl mix together beef, heavy cream, beaten egg, salt, oregano and panko bread crumbs.
  3. Do not pack the meat too tightly, you want to use a lighter touch so that the meatball does not get too compacted allowing for a lighter moist (versus heavy, hard) final product meatball.
  4. Once combined, sprinkle gouda cheese cubes over the top and mix to blend throughout the mixture.
  5. Form the meat into balls, slightly bigger than a golf ball then toss each meatball into the parmesan cheese to coat.
  6. Chill for a minimum of 15 minutes to set the shape.
  7. If you are making ahead to use the next day or later in the day, you can make the meatballs to here. The meatballs in the raw state will need to be covered with plastic or foil if you are waiting longer than an hour to bake them.
  1. Place Meatballs onto a broiling pan (alternatively use a cookie rack over the top of a baking sheet.) You want the meatball fats to be able to fall to the bottom pan.
  2. The meatballs should be spaced 2" apart.
  3. Bake for 20 minutes, turning the pan from front to back at the 10 minute mark to allow for even cooking.
  4. Allow meatballs to rest for 5 mins and serve while hot and cheese is nice and melty.
  5. Serve alone or they work well with a tomato sauce or a bbq sauce!
