Meatballs (or if you want to be really Aussie, rissoles) are a must-have in the repertoire for whole food mums.
Mince is one of those budget ingredients that can be used in so many ways and with so many flavours.
You can serve meatballs straight up with veges or salad. You can make them big to go in a homemade burger or mini to go in lunchboxes or on a wrap.
My tip is to cook them on a tray in the oven for about 10 to 15 minutes on medium. Its saves burning and mess on the stovetop! Plus you can make a double batch and whack some in the freezer for another meal or to pull out for easy kid lunches.
You can use any sort of mince or a combination of meat for meatballs or you can make vegetarian meatballs – I have included two of those for you – it’s good to change it up.
