Mamma’s Cheesy Tomato Meatballs

Mamma's Cheesy Tomato Meatballs

My ‘Mamma’ has been making this delicious recipe ever since I can remember. You know those special childhood meals that you really enjoyed and want to carry on the tradition for your kids? Well this is one of those for me and I wanted to share it with you!

It’s so easy to make and so extremely tasty. The kids love the little ‘surprise’ in the middle when they cut open their meatball and oozy cheese comes out! Mmmmm!

You will need:

500gms of mince (we use heart smart/lean mince)

2 x 400g cans of tomato soup

1/2 bunch parsley chopped

200gms cheese cut into cubes (mozzarella works best, but cheddar, tasty any cheese will work fine)

1 cup cooked rice (we use long grain)

salad to serve


Mumma's Cheesy Tomato Meat Balls

Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees (celcius)

Step 1

Cook rice according to packet directions and let cool

Step 2

Add your mince to a large bowl and add the cooked rice & half of the parsley and mix well

Step 3

Roll the mixture into palm size balls

Step 4

Flatten your meatball and add a cube of cheese to the middle. Once added, complete rolling your meatball into a ball shape.

Step 5

Add one can of the tomato soup to the bottom of a greased oven dish

Step 6

Add all of your cheesed up meatballs to the oven dish

Step 7

Cover with the remaining can of tomato soup

Step 8

Garnish with a little of the parsley

Step 9 

Bake for 30 minutes or until cooked through

Step 10 

Serve with a lovely garden salad – it’s also yummy served with garlic bread

  1. These look great. I have tried a similar that the kids really enjoyed before but I have tried putting cheese in the middle. My two boys would love that 🙂

  2. Inthe US, would tomato sauce be the equivalent of the tomato soup called for in the recipe? Looks delicious, can’t wait to try it!

    1. Hi Christy, I’ve done that in the past and it worked out great. A super way to meal plan ahead of time :). Louise x
