Whenever I make these meatballs for dinner in a tomato sauce served with pasta I always make extra meatballs just so I can freeze them to take out for a different lunch to take to school instead of sandwiches.


Ingredients (serves 10)

  • 500g chicken mince
  • 60g grated parmesan
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed
  • 1 cup fresh white breadbrumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tbs parsley, chopped
  • 1 tsp salt (or to taste)

Method

  1. Mix all ingredients together, shape tablespoons of mixture into small balls and chill for an hour to firm up.
  2. Heat oil in a shallow pand and fry the balls in batches until golden brown all over.
  3. Serve with buttered rice with added peas and corn and some broccoli on the side (as in the photo) in a thermos bowl to keep it warm.

Notes... Alternately you can serve them cold on a skewer with whatever you like (my kids like it alternating with cubes of cheese, carrot and cucumber) To make it Gluten Free use Gluten Free bread.
