Mozzarella-Stuffed Italian Elk Meatballs

Mozzarella-Stuffed Italian Elk Meatballs

Prep Time - 15 mins
Cook Time - 25 mins


  • 1 pound Ground Elk Burger
  • ½ tsp Fennel
  • ½ tsp Oregano
  • ½ tsp Sage
  • ½ tsp Marjoram
  • ½ tsp Garlic Powder
  • ½ tsp Kosher Salt
  • ½ tsp Ground Black Pepper
  • ¼ tsp Red Chili Flakes Optional
  • 1 Red Onion Diced
  • 6-7 Bocconcini Mozzarella Balls
  • 1 Egg
  • ¾ cup Bread Crumbs
  • 16 ounces Water
  • 2 cups Red Pasta Sauce Your choice


  • Combine all 8 spices with ground elk and mix together with onion. Take a handful of ground elk meat and begin to form a medium meatball that fits in the palm of your hand. Add 1 bocconcini to the center and continue to pack meat around the cheese until you have a meatball. Repeat until done, approx. 15 meatballs.
    Using a non-stick CanCooker JR or Companion. Place meatballs on bottom and add pasta sauce. Place CanCooker onto a burner using medium low heat and heat until steaming.
    Cook for 20-25 minutes.
    Serve elk meatballs in a bowl with pasta sauce and garnish with fresh grated cheese or serve over pasta with a salad.


  • Perfect Addition – I serve this with a veggie and mashed potatoes. To change it up sometimes I change to venison for some variety with meal time.
