How To Make This Meatball Recipe
This is such an easy recipe to make, which makes it an awesome appetizer. You can make these cheeseburger meatballs ahead of time and then warm them up in the oven or microwave. We’ve also made them and kept them on low in a slow cooker for parties or tailgating.
Start out with a few ingredients in a mixing bowl…ground beef, relish, ketchup an egg and Lipton Onion Soup Mix.
Next comes the cheese. These meatballs are going to be oozing with cheese when they come out of the oven, in the best way possible.
Roll the beef mixture into meatballs (you can use a cookie scoop to get them all the same size) then place them on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
After about 15 minutes in the oven, you’ve got the most delicious appetizer or dinner recipe ever. We’ve been making these meatballs for years and I can promise you, there are never any left behind!
Can You Freeze These Meatballs?
Yes, you definitely can. Bake the meatballs, let them cool completely and then put them into a container or resealable freezer bag. When you’re ready to heat them up again, pop them into a 375 degree oven for 20-25 minutes until they are warmed through.
Try serving these meatballs with Thousand Island dressing for dipping, ketchup, Ranch or even our super popular AWESOME SAUCE!
