Bocconcini Filled Mediterranean Meatballs

October 27, 20231 min read

Not sure what to cook tonight?

We often feel the same!

That is why we always have some meatballs or patties from our Single Serves recipe book in the freezer, ready to go. They make the healthy choice the easy choice on those "I've had a long day" or "simply can't be bothered" nights.

Bocconcini Filled Mediterranean Meatballs

Makes 20 small meatballs or 10 small patties

500g lean beef mince
1 cup multigrain breadcrumbs
6 cherry tomatoes, finely diced
40g chargrilled red capsicum, finely diced
2 tablespoons basil, chopped
2 tablespoons tomato relish
1 egg
Salt and pepper to taste
5 mini bocconcini balls, cut into quarters

Place all ingredients (except bocconcini) in a bowl and mix well. Roll into walnut sized balls. Make a small hole and press in bocconcini, then encase within the meat mixture. Place onto a non-stick or oiled oven tray and place in a pre-heated oven at 180°C for 15 minutes or until cooked through and golden.

Suitable to freeze.

Nutrition information (per 2 meatballs): kilojoules 725, calories 172, protein 17g, fat 6.5g, saturated fat 3g, carbohydrate 10.5g, fibre 1g.

We have found they work well with a simple mediterranean salad of tomato, cucumber, parsley or some oven roasted diced veggies such as tomatoes, eggplant and zucchini - whatever takes your fancy come meal time!
