1 1/2TeaspoonsDry Basil or 3 Teaspoons Freshchopped basil
Mozzarellacut in small cubes
Marinara for serving
Place the meat in a large bowl and sprinkle the garlic, basil, salt, and pepper on top.
Next, add the panko bread crumbs and then the milk.
Allow the mixture to sit for 5 minutes.
Add the egg and lightly mix until everything is just combined.
Refrigerate for 20 to 30 minutes.
Remove the meat from the fridge and roll into golf ball sized meatballs, being careful to not overwork the meat, press down to create a crater with your thumb, place a small chunk of mozzarella and seal the meatball again.
Heat a nonstick skillet over medium high heat, add the meatballs and turn down to medium.
Cook the meatballs for about 8 minutes, turning occasionally to brown all sides.
Remove to a dish and top with warmed marinara sauce.
The meatballs can be cooked almost entirely through, 5-6 minutes, cooled completely and frozen on a baking sheet. Place the frozen meatballs in a ziploc bag for easy dinners all winter long. Just cook the meatballs in a 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes or in a skillet for 8-12 minutes.
