Oven-baked meatballs

Fond of meatballs but don't want to go through the fuss of frying? Now you can have it with the help of an oven. When I first saw this recipe from a magazine, I was pretty excited and immediately got the necessary ingredients and try it out. This is a dish that is exceptionally simple to make yet taste just as nice.


minced meat (any meat to your liking)

chopped onion, garlic, carrot and parsley which i have forgotten to buy (you can also add in any other vegetables to add more colour and flavours)

breadcrumbs (if you do not have any, make on the spot by toasting a piece of white bread, put it in the re-sealable plastic bag and then crush on it)

cooking spray comes in useful to spray on the tray so your meatballs don't stick on it

Prepare all ingredients in a mixing bowl. Mix everything evenly. Add in some olive oil, salt and pepper to taste.

Scoop small balls and place on tray. Try and make balls as even as possible and not too big. A maximum diameter of 1.5cm is good enough.

When ready, place in oven with a temperature of 180°C for 15-20 minutes.

Your cooked meatballs should look like something above.
Hope you can try this out for the upcoming Christmas celebration.
HAPPY Christmas readers & Happy Eating!!! ^.^
