My husband was a huge fan of this recipe. I walked downstairs with the baby and saw him pilfering these out of the fridge to eat cold. They are super easy to make and you can prep them ahead of time and freeze them if you want to.

· 1 Tbsp. Chopped Rosemary
· 1 Egg
· 1 Cup Bread Crumbs

· 1 Cup shredded Mozarella
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Take a bowl and add the ground turkey, garlic, basil, rosemary, salt, pepper, and egg. Mix all together.
Take a small amount of ground meat mixture, you can use an ice cream scoop, a spoon, or just your hand and roll out the meatballs.
Once all of your meatballs are created. Cut up your Mozzarella sticks into small pieces.
Insert a piece into each meatball and roll the meat around so it covers up the cheese.
After all of the meatballs are stuffed. Pop into the oven for 15 minutes. After the time is up, add the tomato sauce. Bake for an additional 15 minutes.
Add Mozzarella cheese to the meatballs. Bake for 5 minutes or so until cheese is melted and browned.
