Primal Mozzarella Stuffed Meatballs Go To A Dinner Party

We had an elegant dinner party last night with our friends.
It was classy and the food was well prepared.
Naw! Just fooling.
It looked more like this...

Our one set of friends came late to the party...and had to be punished.
We made them eat on the baby plates and drink out of the sippy cups.

They were good sports about the whole thing.
My husband even gave Carla a paddle...

But she loved it!
I decided to make Primal Mozzarella Stuffed Meatballs and serve them in a red sauce.
Usually meatballs are made with breadcrumbs, and being Primal people we shun the bread and grains.
I decided to try using the coconut flour biscuits that we use as bread as the bread crumbs for our Primal Meatballs.
It worked out perfectly.
Here is the recipe for these moist cheesy delights.

Primal Mozzarella Stuffed Meatballs:

Primal Mozzarella Stuffed Meatballs


2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (I used basil flavored)
2 pounds grass fed ground sirloin
2 large eggs
1/2 cup finely chopped white onion
1/2 cup minced into small pieces coconut flour biscuits
1/2 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup organic heavy cream
2 tablespoons minced garlic
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons yellow mustard
2 tablespoons oregano
2 tablespoons basil
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
20-24 Mozzarella balls

Preheat oven to 35o degrees F. and grease 9×13-inch baking dish with oil.

Place beef, egg, onion, biscuit crumbs, Parmesan, cream, garlic, Worcestershire, mustard, spices, salt, pepper and garlic powder into a large mixing bowl, stirring until just combined.
Take a chunk of the beef mixture and press into center with your thumb to make room for cheese ball.
Place cheese in middle then cover with the beef, making sure the cheese is completely enveloped.   I rolled it around in my palm to be sure no cheese was showing.

Place meatballs into prepared baking dish and bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until cooked through.
I let them rest for a half hour, then simmered them in some of my homemade roasted tomato sauce.
It made 24 large meatballs.

These were great, and gone too quickly.
I hope you make these Primal meatballs and enjoy them too!


  1. These sound amazing! I have to eat a diet very similar to yours because of problems with yeast, and I'm always very sad that I can't trust most meatballs. I'll have to try this recipe!

  2. They were super easy and great tasting.
    Thanks for reading :)

  3. As a member of the "dinner party" I can honestly say that the meatballs were superb!The company was even better. And although the chocolate cups may have not been perfectly formed, they were perfectly delicious. Thanks Sarah!!
