· 150 g white cheese

· 4 tablespoons onion

· 2 egg yolks

· 3 tablespoons breadcrumbs

· 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

· ¼ cup chopped parsley

· Salt and pepper, to taste

· 500 g lean ground beef

· 2½ cups barbecue sauce


Preheat the oven to 200°C. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with cooking spray. Cut the cheese into 15 cubes and set aside. In a bowl, combine onion, egg yolks, bread crumbs, Worcestershire sauce, chopped parsley, and salt and pepper. Mix until well combined. Add in ground beef and mix just until combined. Divide beef mixture into 15 equal portions. Flatten one portion of the beef mixture and add a cube of cheese in the center. Wrap the beef up around the cheese and pinch together to seal. Form into a meatball shape. Repeat for the remaining portions of beef mixture and cheese cubes. Place all the stuffed meatballs on a baking sheet and bake for 15-18 minutes. Transfer the meatballs to a baking dish, coat with barbecue sauce, and cover. Return the meatballs to oven and bake for another 10 minutes. Remove and serve with dips.
