    Jezza Meatballs

    I have revamped this little recipe and I have now been told by the Jezzarettes and Mrs Jezza that this is one of their favourite meals that I cook, so I thought I would share it.

    Ingredients

    1Ib of lean Beef mince
    2 slices of bread (decrusted)
    2 cloves of garlic
    Oregano
    2 medium sized onions
    1 large egg
    Tin of tomatoes
    Plain flour
    cooking oil

    Method
    1) In a food blender whizz the slices of bread to create small bread crumbs, put to one side
    2) finely chop one onion and place in blender and whizz it to form a fine paste
    3) Add minced meat, the egg, 2 teaspoons of oregano, one crushed clove of garlic and breadcrumbs, whizz it on full power until it becomes a fine paste

    Now take a small amount of the meat and roll into a small ball about 1 inch across and dip in flour creating a fine coating, place to one side, repeat until all the mixture is used. You should get about 12 balls.

    4) Heat oil in frying pan and place meatballs in. Brown them off but only for a few minutes, place to one side

    Wipe out frying pan

    5) Add the final chopped onion and garlic heat until soft.
    6) Add tin of tomatoes and a teaspoon of oregano, warm through.

    In a large heatproof dish lay the meatballs evenly and then pour the tomato sauce over the top of them.

    7) Place in a hot oven at 180 degrees for 45 minutes

    Serve with noodles or spaghetti with a fresh green salad.

    Enjoy
    Jerry

    I was going to say, you are treading on dangerous ground there....Mum always cooks the best grub (that is when you speak to her) and then

    Mrs Rudi/Jezza always cooks the best grub ( when you are speaking to her)

    I have decided this mother/daughter in law form of diplomacy is one to stay way clear of <img src=/S/flee.gif border=0 alt=flee width=25 height=25>

    Anyway this is one that the Rudiette could join in with as it just a lot of whizzing with the blender

    No Alan, you need a blender, a pan and a heat source! <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>

    Just wait a few days and you can use my solar ray gun. I would leave the Coke and the Chocolate for afterwards

    Better still, a six pack. By the end you couldn't care less about the meatballs and chocolate.
