Cheddar-Stuffed BBQ Meatballs


  • 1 cup Kansas City style BBQ sauce
  • 1/2 cup hoisin sauce
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 2 eggs, large
  • 2 pounds ground beef, chuck
  • Kosher salt & ground black pepper, to taste


Evenly mix BBQ & hoisin sauces in a mixing bowl. Put garlic powder, onion powder & eggs in a mixing bowl & whisk together. Add ground beef & season to taste. Combine all ingredients using your hands (don't over-mix). Form into 32 mini meatballs. Place the meatballs on a cookie sheet. Dent the center of each meatball with your thumb and then fill with Kaukauna Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Roll them in your palms to make a round meatball shape, encasing the cheese so it's not visible. Bake in a glass casserole dish at 350°F for 15 min. Spoon the sauce on all sides of meatballs & bake another 10-15 min. Serve hot, directly from the casserole dish, and enjoy!
