These mouthwatering meatballs are made with seasoned ground sirloin (or ground turkey) and melty sharp cheddar cheese, making them uniquely delicious. They can be served on a platter or as a fun appetizer; skewer them on toothpicks with cheeseburger fixins like lettuce, red onion, pickle chips and tomatoes. You can also pile them on a sub roll for the ultimate hearty sandwich. There’s no wrong turn! We like to serve them with ketchup or mustard for dipping…or with some “special sauce,” which is a simple combo of equal parts ketchup and light mayo. In the spirit of Al Roker, it’s cloudy with a chance of meatballs!
