Soak the slice of bread in a little water then mash with the hands until creamy. Place into a mixing bowl, then add the veal, seasoning, garlic, onion, cinnamon and mint and mix thoroughly. If the mixture is too stiff, you can add a couple spoonfuls of milk to loosen. Form the mixture into small meatballs then coat with flour.
Warm the oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat then add the meatballs and fry on all sides for 5 to 6 minutes turning frequently to allow them to cook through. Cook until the meatballs are no longer pink in the centre. Remove from the pan and serve hot or cold.
