  • 5 mozzarella cheese sticks, each cut into 5 bite-sized ½ inch cubes
  • For the sauce:
  • 1 15-ounce can tomato sauce
  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
  • ½ packet dry onion soup mix


  1. In a large bowl, combine ground beef, onion soup mix, bread crumbs, egg and chopped bacon.
  2. Using your hands, work all the ingredients together until well mixed.
  3. Take one spoonful of ground beef mixture, flatten slightly, add a cheese cube and form the ground beef around the cheese cube into a ball. Make sure none of the cheese cube is showing. Repeat until all the ground beef mixture is used, and you have around 15 meatballs.
  4. For the sauce, in a large stock pot, combine the tomato sauce, ground mustard, Worcestershire Sauce and remaining ½ packet of dry onion soup mix. Whisk together.
  5. Add the meatballs, fitting into the pot so they are all covered in sauce.
