For Dinner: Meatballs

I don’t know about you, but sometimes I am just soooooo tired of the usual meat that we have for dinner. I love steak, but it is sooooo heavy. I love chicken and pork, but I kind of run out of new ways to eat it that doesn’t involve a lot of time in the kitchen… (lets face it, after a full day work, then gym, then walking the dogs, you really want something that is quick and easy to whip up!)

Jamie Oliver’s Meatballs

I have been in the mood for meatballs for ever!! So I decided that although it is not exactly a fast option, the change was worth the extra time… And it is so easy!

I followed the recipe almost to a tee. I did not have fresh nutmeg though, I just used ground nutmeg instead. I also used dried chilli powder instead of fresh chilli. Excuse my photos as I have a long way to go before my food photos will actually look good!!

I used parmesan instead of pecorino (because that is what we had!) and I did not use any marjoram (What is marjoram?)…

Can I just say…. It was DELICIOUS!!! Easy, quick(-ish) and superbly delicious!! I would definitely recommend you try this recipe!! The recipe says it serves 4, but we (me and my hubster) ate just the meatballs and only had like 4 meatballs left…. om-nom-nom!!! I can’t wait to make this again!! Click on the link below for the full recipe on Jamie’s website and…… happy eating!! 🙂
