Nikki I find when it leaks that the cheese is cut too large or it’s not in the centre properly

My husband cuts and freezes the cubes solid to give the mince time to deal around the cheese

Wow, theses were amazing. I did make the balls smaller with a total of 18 and all of the cheese leaked out, I thought I sealed them well enough. Next time I think I will make them bigger. The sauce was very tasty, added extra garlic, cause who doesn’t like extra garlic. Will be making this again for sure.
