Savoury Meatballs (Gluten free option)

These are great as a starter, nibbles or for a pot luck dinner dish. They are also very easy to make. These can be eaten fresh or stored in an air tight container in the fridge for up to a week (just heat them in the oven or microwave before serving).


  • 500 g mince meat
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup stale bread crumbs (can be removed for gluten free option)
  • 1 clove of garlic (chopped)
  • 2 teaspoons Italian herbs
  • Salt and pepper (to taste)
  • Bowl
  • Two tablespoons of olive oil
  • Fry pan
  • Stove
  • Biscuit tray lined with baking paper
  • Your favourite dipping sauces (Tomato, BBQ or Soy sauce)

What To Do: 

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C.
  2. In a bowl mix the meat, egg, bread crumbs, garlic, Italian herbs, salt and pepper until well combine
  3. Take a heaped teaspoon of meat mixture and roll into a ball
  4. Heat the stove up (turn on high heat) and place in oil in the fry pan
  5. Place the meatballs in the fry pan and cook until they are brown
  6. Remove the meatballs from the fry pan and place them on the lined baking tray (be very carefully as they will be hot)
  7. Place the tray with the meatballs into the oven and cook for 20 minutes (or until the meatballs are cooked through) [if you don’t have an oven skip this step by cooking the meatballs all the way through on a medium heat in the fry pan]
  8. Remove from the oven and serve fresh with your favourite dipping sauce and enjoy

If you make the meatballs a little bigger (say a dessert spoon of meat mixture) and mix with a tomato (pasta) sauce. Add your favourite pasta (cooked of course) and you have yourself a delicious dinner.

If you want to add more spice then add 1 red chilli (finely chopped and seedless) in at step 2.
