Cheese Filling:




  • For the cheese filling, add all ingredients to a food processor and puree until well combined. Scoop the filling out into 12 (1-tablespoon) balls. Cover and freeze until solid, about 2 hours.
  • Meanwhile, mix together all ingredients for the meat in a large bowl. Scoop the meat into 12 equal portions and roll each into a ball. Cover and refrigerate until the cheese balls are frozen.
  • Once the cheese balls are frozen, preheat the oven to 375F and line a large baking sheet with foil or parchment paper. Lightly spray it with avocado oil.
  • Working with 1 meatball at a time, stuff a cheese ball into the center and shape the meat around the cheese. Continue until all the meatballs are stuffed with cheese.
  • Arrange the meatballs on the prepared baking sheet and lightly spray the tops with avocado oil. Bake until the meat is cooked through, about 20 minutes.
  • Serve warm, with marinara sauce if desired.
