    Serves: 5 

    • 450g pork mince
    • 2 eggs
    • 1 packet of natural breadcrumbs
    • 1 apple (diced)
    • 1/2 leek (diced)

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. In a bowl combine the mince, 1 egg, 1/2 the breadcrumbs along with the apple and leek.
    2. Bring together with fingertips.
    3. Mould the mixture into 8-10 'meatball' shapes.
    4. Gently beat the second egg into a small container and place the rest of the breadcrumbs onto a plate.
    5. One by one roll the 'meatballs' in the beaten egg then thoroughly coat with the breadcrumbs.
    6. Place on baking tray for 15-18 minutes or until cooked through. Alternativley you can deep fry these for about 5-6 minutes or until golden and crispy.
    7. My suggested serving is with a crunchy salad, baked potato and cheese sauce.

    They were lovely, the crunchy crumbs, apple and leek were delicious, the recipe could have been a little clearer (i.e. amount of breadcrumbs), and maybe 2 eggs to bind better and then a further one to cover in breadcrumbs, I served mine with mash, cabbage and gravy and me and my son loved it!!  -  20 Jul 2013
