A quick meatball recipe that’s our family favourite. The hidden veg is great, add more grated veg, or cook in a crushed tomato sauce
Use any mince, chicken, lamb or beef

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 500g Mince
  • 1 Carrot, grated
  • Fresh herbs, chopped fine
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 cup Baby spinach, chopped fine
  • 4 Garlic cloves, crushed


  1. Mix all ingredients in a bowl thoroughly
  2. Roll into small balls
  3. Fry slowly until golden
  4. Serve with dipping sauce

  • This sounds super easy! Can’t wait to give it a try, my son loves meat balls, now to figure out what dipping sauce to use!


  • Love trying different meatball recipes to find my perfect recipe


  • My son has just started to like mince these would be perfect to hide some veg as he is really into meat balls thank you !


  • This sounds good thanks for sharing. I will give these a go.


  • This is a great fun recipe for my toddler. He loves mince dishes so i might give this a try for a different texture


  • This looks great! I tend to get turned off meatball recipes that ask for breadcrumbs.


  • I’ll try these out on my picky toddler. Fingers crossed she likes them!


  • Simple recipe with few ingredients. Will try this recipe.


  • This recipe looks super easy with few ingredients which is a winner in my eyes. I love the added baby spinach which I’ve never seen in a meatball recipe before and the garlic is great for the winter months. I will try and make some of these for my fussy 1 year old.


  • These would be great on skewers too


  • Yum I think the whole family will like these,so easy.Thank you for sharing.


  • Love a recipe that is easy and tasty!


  • I made these today and the whole family loved them. There were none left. Next time I will have to make a double batch. I served them up with a tomato relish I bought from Coles. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
