Cheesy Meatball Skillet

You can never have too many recipe ideas for dinner, this "Cheesy Meatball Skillet," recipe is the perfect dinner idea for busy weeknight meals. If you decide to make the meatballs by scratch this recipe will need some more time, but there are some shortcuts you can use such as using some frozen Italian meatballs, or some frozen meatballs you have made from scratch and put aside.

If you are making your meatballs from scratch you will want to get them the right size for this cheese meatball skillet recipe. The recipe creator used an ice cream scoop to get then sized, they are about the size of golf balls, that gives about four meatballs per person. To start you will want to get the pan and oil nice na hot before you start pan frying so they don't stick. Using a 10 inch skillet is a good size (you may have to make two batches depending on how many people you are serving). You want some space for the meatballs to roll around so you can brown them on all sides. You can use some oil in the pan, enough to coat the bottom of the skillet so the meatballs won't stick, you'll want to brown your meatballs. At this point you can remove any excess oil that is in the pan. You can make your own marinara sauce or again you can save time and by a premade one. You can now add the marinara sauce to the pan (the meatballs will get added afterwards), some worcestershire sauce added tastes good, along with some beef bouillon cubes and red pepper flakes too. Add the meatballs one at a time and roll them around in the sauce to get them fully coated, as you add them back to the skillet, them simmer them in the sauce, you will want to reduce the heat to a gentle simmer at this point. Once the sauce and meatballs are done simmering, you can top with some mozzarella cheese, and some parmesan cheese if you'd like.
