Meatballs: They are kid-friendly, versatile and fun to eat.  This is how I make them.

2. Form balls using your hands.

3. Heat oil in a fry pan and brown the meatballs carefully. They don’t need to be cooked through, just browned on the outside.

4. Place browned meat balls on a baking paper lined tray and cook in a 180°C oven for about 25 minutes, until cooked through.

5. I did a double batch, and made some large for rissoles, and a heap of meatballs to freeze for another meal (they freeze very well).

I use this recipe to make:

  • Rissoles (made a little larger than the meatballs) served with handcut wedges and vegetables
  • Meatballs in a tomato sauce with pasta or rice
  • With finger food for a light dinner (carrot sticks, cherry tomato, celery sticks, garlic bread)
  • Meatball & Noodle Soup
