I made this recipe in an attempt to use up some pork mince that was about to go out of date.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
