Makes: 12 meatballs

  • 2 slices seeded wholemeal bread
  • milk as needed
  • 500g lean minced beef
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons dried chilli flakes
  • 2 teaspoons dried basil

  • 4 tablespoons plain flour
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:35min 

  1. Soak the 2 slices of bread in milk, just enough to make them moist. Mix the mince with the salt, pepper, chilli, basil, garlic and mustard in a large bowl with your hands, add the soaked bread and the egg to the mix and crush into a large ball.
  2. Cut the mozzarella into 6 pieces and rub each piece with flour. Cover completely with the meat mixture, repeating this 12 times. Dust with the remaining flour.
  3. Heat the oil on a medium-high heat in a large frying pan. Once the oil is hot place the meatballs into the oil and turn when each side is browned.
  4. If using with a sauce - I recommend a homemade tomato sauce - once the meatballs are browned off, add them to your sauce for a further ten minutes before serving.
