    I made this recipe in an attempt to use up some pork mince that was about to go out of date. I liked the recipe so much I've decided to save it and make again later.  -  18 Mar 2010


    I made these for a starter when going to a friends house and everybody loved them, It made 24 smallish balls and I served them with a salad and ranch dressing. Great recipe.  -  18 Aug 2014
