Delicious BBQ Meatballs Perfect For All Occasions

My mother-in-law would make these delicious meatballs for events and gathering and I thought they were the most mouth-watering pieces of beefy goodness.  Over the years I have changed the recipe, but only slightly. These meatballs are perfect for parties and pot-lucks. You will be surprised how easy they are to make.

To spruce up the recipe, I added shredded cheese. My easy meatball recipe gets a little zestier when you add Stella Parmesan cheese.  Holiday cheese recipes don’t have to just be a cheese and crackers. There is something wonderful about having adding cheese to your traditional holiday recipes.

My local grocery store had some amazing Stella cheese to choose from. The cheeses are rich and full of flavor. With an Italian history of traditional cheesemaking, Stella® cheese is the perfect addition to these meatballs.
