Recipe for Meatballs with Mozzarella

This is Meatballs or Zrazy is a meat dish originated in Poland and Ukraine. It is traditionally made from ground meat with some filling. For filling, they usually use potatoes or mushrooms. In our own recipe we used Mozzarella balls, soft Italian cheese.

Meatballs came out delicious as if stuffed with cream as cheese melts while frying.

If Mozzarella is not available, use any soft cheese. As for meat, it is preferable to mix beef and pork. That’d be great option.
