  2. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except mozzarella cheese; mix well.

  3. Divide mixture into 20 meatballs, then form each meatball around a mozzarella cube, making sure to cover cheese completely. Place on prepared baking sheet.

Don't worry if the cheese starts to ooze out. Serve with a dipping sauce if using as an appetizer, or with spaghetti and sauce for a complete meal.
