This mini meatball recipe is a quick and easy recipe that is also really good to make in the slow cooker. My fussy little one will even eat this, it can make 6 or more meals depending how big a portion they need and how many vegetables you put in.

Ingredients (serves 6)

  • 150-200g mince meat
  • 1-2 cans chopped tomatoes (blended if fussy eater)
  • 2 carrots (grated)
  • 1/2 large zucchini (grated)
  • 1/2 brown onion (finely chopped)
  • handful sweet potato (grated)


  1. Roll the mince meat into very small balls depending on your child's progress in eating solids.
  2. Throw in the vegetables and meatballs and let them slightly cook. (You can add any vegetables you like).
  3. Add the tomatoes and let it all simmer checking everything is soft and tender and the meatballs are cooked through. Around 30 mins is usually enough as the meatballs are small, just give a little longer if they are not cooked through.

  • Mmmmm, looks so tastey. I can imagine the kids will eat this up no issues at all


  • What a great recipe, thanks for sharing!


  • My girls will love this with spaghetti noodles


  • If it goes in the slow cooker, I am in!!


  • The recipe is a bit confusing. Roll them into balls then add the veggies! And the picture doesn’t really look like it has any meatballs in it


  • Thanks a lot for this great recipe ! I cant wait to give it a try ! Yummmmm


  • Just what I need tonight thanks!!


  • looove meatballs esp in winter! thanks!


  • Thanks for sharing, another thing to do in the slow cooker to save time.


  • Thanks for sharing this great recipe!.


  • i haven’t tried cooking them in the slow cooker before!


  • meat balls are great – these sound like the perfect thing for kids.


  • Great for fussy eaters.


  • Anything easy and slow cooker adaptable is a winner in my eyes. But the fact that the kids would love it too is an added bonus and win win situation all round.


  • Not onion lovers so I don’t put any in. If you decide to make this on the spur of the moment you can use some tomato sauce.
