Lizzie’s Pork & Veal Meatballs

There is nothing on this planet that can’t be enhanced by the addition of meatballs.  They are one of our favourite things to eat and I make them on a regular basis.  We eat them in tomato sauce with pasta, I make big fat ones that go beautifully with mashed potatoes and gravy.  I also make these smaller ones which are perfect to drop into a soup or just scoff as a snack.  My huband eats them as they are coming out of the pan…

A kilo of mince will make around 40 meatballs.  They freeze very well…  Enjoy!

Pork & Veal Meatballs

 

 

Ingredients:

1 kilogram of pork & veal mince

2 slices of bread soaked in milk

3 tablespoons of tomato sauce

Large handful of grated parmesan cheese

½ cup finely chopped parsley

½ teaspoon of freshly grated nutmeg

Salt & pepper to taste

Butter for frying

Method:

Soak the bread in a bowl until soft and mushy then squeeze out most of the milk

Add to the minced pork and veal along with the rest of the ingredients seasoning with salt and pepper to taste

Using your hands, mix everything together thoroughly

Using wet hands scoop out a small amount of mince mixture and roll into a meatball between your palms.

They should be about the size of a large walnut but can be any size you want really…

Heat a generous amount of butter in a large pan and when sizzling, gently put the meatballs in

Cook over a medium heat taking care not to burn the butter and shaking the meatballs from time to time. Use tongs to flip them over if necessary

They should take around 8-10 minutes to cook through

Drain on paper towels before serving…

 

Bon Appetit! 🙂
