Equipment

  • Box grater
  •  Bowls
  • Spoon
  • Cutting board
  • Knife
  • Tin Foil- we will need 8 pieces that are 12×12 each to make 4 packets
  • Non Stick Spray
  • Pastry or bbq brush

Ingredients

MEATBALLS

  • 1 lb lean ground beef you can also use ground chicken, turkey or VPS
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp dried basil
  • 2 tbsp fresh chopped parsley
  • 3/4 cup panko Italian style crispy bread crumbs
  • 2 tbsp grated onion use a small onion and box grater
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 12 little cheese balls either mini cocktail bocconcini or 12 little cubes of cheddar

BURGER SAUCE

  • ½ cup ketchup
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp yellow mustard
  • 2 tbsp relish
  • ½ tsp pepper

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, mix beef, bread crumbs, onion, salt and egg. We want to blend it all together but not overmix. The more you mix the tougher they become
  • Shape mixture into 12 (2-inch) balls. Press 1 cheese ball into the center of each meatball, sealing it inside.
  • Lay 4 squares of tin foil down on the counter
  • Lay 4 squares on top, so we have a double layer
  • Liberally spray with nonstick spray leaving a border around the edges
  • Portion out between four 12×12 inch pieces of foil (we will double this foil, so each packet will be a double layer of 2 pieces of 12×12 foil)
  • Pull up all 4 sides of each sheet of foil to create a little wall on all 4 sides
  • Spoon the burger sauce over the meatballs, evenly into the 4 packets
  • Wrap foil securely around mixture
  • Pierce top of foil once or twice with a fork to vent steam.

COOKING DIRECTIONS

    GRILL- Place packs on a 350 grill seam sides up over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 20 to 25 minutes or until meatballs are thoroughly cooked and no longer pink in center.

      OVEN- Place the foil packs on 2 sheet pans and bake at 375 for about 25 minutes until meatballs are fully cooked through (165F)

        HOW TO SERVE:

        • Serve on rice, or with toothpicks as appetizers. You can also serve in split hot dog rolls, or a couple into a hamburger or slider bun with your typical cheeseburger toppings!
