Smoked Mozzarella Meatballs

So, I had some leftover mozzarella balls from my pasta salad yesterday and decided to make some mozzarella stuffed meatballs.

Ingredients:
1 3/4 lb. of mixed veal, beef, and pork
Salt and pepper
Garlic salt
Fresh, minced basil and parsley
Parmesan cheese
1 egg
1/4 loaf of Italian bread, cut into cubes, softened in water
Mozzarella balls

Directions:
Preheat oven to 400.
Mix together meat with all ingredients above, except mozzarella.
Form about 20 meatballs slightly larger than the size of a golf ball.
Make an indent in the center with your thumb.
Place a piece of mozzarella inside and form meat back over to cover the mozzarella.
Place a piece of parchment paper on a cookie sheet and line meatballs on sheet.
Bake for 15-20 minutes, serve with your favorite pasta!
