Meatball bake – an easy and scrumptious family meal any day of the week.

SAVE THIS RECIPE! Another easy go to, delicious recipe for the family. This was so good we had it two nights runningšŸ¤¤
Ingredients for meatballs
– 500g beef mince
– 250g pork mince
– 1 onion, finely chopped
– 1 egg
– 3/4 cup of fine breadcrumbs
– Handful of spinach, finely chopped
– Pinch of salt and petter
– Pinch of mixed herbs

Ingredients for sauce
– 700g bottle of passata sauce
– 1 cup of water
– 1 crumbed beef stock cube
– 1 teaspoon minced/crushed garlic
– 1 teaspoon minced/crushed ginger
– Dash of olive oil
– 1 cup of grated cheddar cheese
– Grated Parmesan cheese (optional)

Method
– Mix all ingredients for the meatballs together.
– Form mixture into balls and place them in the fridge (I did them the size of a ping pong balls).
– Heat oil in a pan on medium heat, add garlic and ginger until fragrant (usually less than a minute).
– Add passata, water and crumbed stock cube until it begins to bubble.
– Add meatballs to ovenproof tray/dish and spoon sauce over them.
– Sprinkle cheddar cheese on top and place dish in the oven for 25 minutes.
– Sprinkle with Parmesan for extra cheesy goodness (optional) and serve with garlic bread (perfect for soaking up the sauce), rice, pasta or a fresh leaf salad.

Note: if you have an ovenproof skillet or pan you can add the meatballs directly into the sauce and pot the skillet/pan in the oven, removing the need for an additional dish.
