Alyssa Collazo: Slow Cooker Stuffed Turkey Meatballs♥

Slow Cooker Stuffed Turkey Meatballs♥

It's time for me to share one of my absolute favorite Slow Cooker recipes, Slow Cooker Stuffed Turkey Meatballs. I still remember the first time I tried this recipe. I wanted to try a new Meatball recipe that was simple to make, different and of course a Slow Cooker meal. I was going through our refrigerator and remember looking at my daughters mozzarella cheese sticks and thought, hmm I wonder how that would be stuffed in a meatball. And just like that I created a meal that is not only easy but delicious and full of flavor. Think Italian seasoning, turkey, sweet sausage, cheese and a Ragu Six Cheese sauce. Is your mouth watering? Because I know mine sure is. 

Pasta is a huge thing in our house, so I am constantly keeping things like Ragu and Spaghetti in stock. For this recipe I used ingredients that I almost always have in our house. You can also use your Slow Cooker on two different settings. Low for 5 - 6 hours or high for 2 - 2.5 hours. This time around I wanted to try a new sauce and cheese, so I went with Ragu Six Cheese sauce instead of my usual Ragu Traditional Sauce and I used fresh mozzarella. It definitely made a difference, next time around I want to try a different Ragu sauce, maybe Tomato, Garlic & Onion or Spicy Italian Style. Which Ragu sauce would you try for this recipe?

Here is the recipe for my Slow Cooker Stuffed Turkey Meatballs:

Slow Cooker Stuffed Turkey Meatballs

Ingredients:
1 Pound of Ground Turkey or Beef
1/2 Pound of Sweet Italian Sausage
1 Jar of Ragu Six Cheese Pasta Sauce
Fresh Mozzarella Cheese
1/2 tsb of Garlic Powder
2 tbsp of Italian Seasonings
1 tsb of Salt
1 tsb of Pepper
1 cup of bread crumbs
1/4 cup of parmesan cheese 
2 Eggs
1/2 cup of Whole Milk

Instructions:
Cut Fresh Mozzarella into 3/4 inch cubes. Store in refrigerator while preparing the meat 
In a large mixing bowl combine your meat, spices, bread crumbs, milk and eggs
Roll golf ball sized balls with the meat mixture
Squish mozzarella cube into the center and pull the edges of the meat ball around it until it is a new ball again
Arrange meatballs in Slow Cooker and cover in Ragu sauce
Cook on low for 5 - 6 hours or high for 2 - 2.5 hours.
Place Stuffed Turkey meatballs on cooked Spaghetti 
Garnish your dish with parmesan cheese  

And there you have it. A dish perfect for any pasta lover. These Stuffed Turkey Meatballs are great for all your Holiday day parties, even as an appetizer. Be sure to check out Ragu for more delicious recipes.

Do you have any Ragu inspired recipes?
