Meat Balls

I always like to have meat balls from IKEA. But my sisters was always compaining about the price of the meal. Thus, the cheapskate me decide to make from scratch.

Makes 40


    1 kg pork mince (half fatty)
    1 medium brown onion, coarsely grated
    55g (3/4 cup) fresh breadcrumbs (made from day-old bread)
    2 garlic cloves, crushed
    1 egg, lightly whisked
    Salt & freshly ground black pepper
    2 1/2 tbs olive oil

  1. Line a baking tray with non-stick baking paper. Combine the veal and pork mince, onion, breadcrumbs, garlic and egg in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Use your hands to mix until combined. Roll 1 heaped tablespoonful of mince mixture into a ball and place on prepared tray. Repeat with the remaining mince mixture.

  2. Heat one-third of the oil in a non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add one-third of the meatballs and cook, turning, for 8 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through. Transfer to a plate. Repeat, in 2 more batches, with the remaining oil and meatballs, reheating pan between batches.
Notes & tips:
- Can freeze up to 3 months.

- Taste great with tomato sauce
