Smoked Mozzarella Meatballs

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

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

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!
