Prep time: 

Cook time: 

Total time: 

Serves: 16 meatballs

  • Cheddar cheese, cut into 16 cubes, approximately ½-inch in size. (My kids like the yellow cheddar, but you can use white cheddar or another type of cheese if you prefer)
  • 1 lb grass-fed ground beef
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon parsley
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ cup breadcrumbs (I usually toast two pieces of bread and then grind them in my Nutribullet)
  • 2 Tablespoons parmesan cheese
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1 28-oz jar spaghetti sauce (Make sure it is only made with real-food ingredients and no added sugar. I like Victoria brand, but use your favorite)
  1. Mix together salt, parsley, egg, garlic powder, black pepper, breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, and milk.
  2. Add ground beef and mix well.
  3. Roll into 16 meatballs.
  4. Place one piece of cheese inside each meatball and roll until cheese is completely covered.
  5. Add meatballs to the crock pot.
  6. Pour sauce over the meatballs.
  7. Cook on high for 4-5 hours.
