Mummy’s Meatballs!

Mummy’s Meatballs!

Mummy’s Meatballs – comforting, warm and tasty. What’s not to love?

This recipe is courtesy of my lovely Mum, which I thought was appropriate for International Mother’s Day.

The preparation does not take too long; it is just important to get the timings right when cooking in the oven, as well as the temperature, so pay attention to those instructions!

This is a great meal to have with veg, mash, rice or even potatoes if you wish!

Enjoy xo Elyse
