Great to serve with spaghetti in a rich tomato and herb pasta sauce, or with mashed potato and topped with gravy.


  • 500 grams minced beef
  • 1 garlic
  • 1 onion (finely chopped)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 slices bread
  • 1 fresh parsley
  • 1 salt
  • 1 pepper

Soak slices of bread in milk. Squeeze the milk out.

Mix together all ingredients in a food processor.

With wet hands shape the mixture into medium-sized balls.

Fry in a frying pan with some olive oil until they are nicely browned on all sides.

Finish them baking in pre-heated oven at 180 C for 20 minutes. Add some olive in the bottom of the dish to keep them moist and tender.
