Meatballs with a filling


Author: Aušra

Date:

Tender, soft and very very delicious. For me and my kids they were just perfect, and only my hubby said that they could be more firm. But I think it’s just a matter of taste 🙂 . I prepared them already two times and both times some of the meatballs split, but it had only difference for look, not for taste.

Time needed:
Yields: 6 servings
Calories: 292 kcal / serving

Ingredients:

  • For the meatballs:
  • 500 g minced meat (poultry or pork)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsps. starch (next time I would use 3 tbsps.)
  • 1 tbsp. mayonnaise
  • 1 onion
  • seasonings (salt, peppers and others)
  • For the filling:
  • 2 hard boiled eggs
  • 1 tbsp. mayonnaise
  • 100 g cheese, grated
  • For the sauce:
  • 1 onion
  • 1 medium carrot
  • 200 ml cream
  • 1 tbsp. flour
  • 1 clove garlic

Directions:

  • First of all prepare filling – chop eggs and mix with cheese and mayonnaise. Season with salt and peppers.
  • Mix all meatballs ingredients and season with seasonings.
  • Pour to the pot water and put on the heat to boil. Meanwhile form meatballs and fill with the filling.
  • When water will boil, lower the heat and put meatballs. Boil them for 5-10 minutes after they rise to the top.
  • While meatballs are boiling, heat the pan, melt some butter and saute chopped onion with carrots (this time I used grated carrot, but for better look you should use thinly sliced).
  • Mix flour with the cream and pour into the pan.
  • Add crushed garlic clove.
  • Season with salt and peppers or other seasonings.
  • When sauce will start to thicken add meatballs and braise for 10 minutes.
  • Enjoy!

Minced meat and cheese bake

This dish is perfect when you have minced meat prepared for meat balls but you don’t want to stand near the pan. It can be prepared in advance and put in a refrigerator. Then even my hubby can bake it. My family just loves this bake, maybe it’s because of the cheese, but I love it because of it’s simplicity.

Minced meat, onions and caraway seeds stew

This stew doesn’t require much of your time, it just needs time to braise. I think freshly baked buns would be perfect here, but I had no time for them, so we ate with white bread. Original recipe calls for a lot more caraway, but I adjusted the amount for my family taste. Also be careful with the salt if using stock or you can end up with too salty stew (as I do sometimes 🙂 ).

Minced meat and cabbage pie with curry and apples

This pie may look strange at first, but we tried it twice and we liked it. Apples gives sweet and Tabasco – spicy tastes. And this pie doesn’t require eggs, so the filling is not so solid but it’s not crumbly also. I and my son liked the pie crust – it’s with whole wheat flour, so it crumbles a little bit more than usual with only white wheat flour, but it has some charm in it.

Minced meat and feta bake

I think this is the last recipe with pasta for some time. Now I’ll take a break from pasta because now we eat a lot of salads, barbecued meat and everything we find in the freezer. Of course when autumn will be near, we gonna need warming and satisfying food, so pasta will be back. Some words about the recipe. It’s satisfying and good, and simple. Unfortunately I had only one third of cheese, but it didn’t ruined the taste.

Meatballs in spicy sauce

When I saw this recipes I immediately wanted to make them. The main reason – meatballs are baked in an oven, so you don’t have to stand near the stove. I made them already a few time and both times they came out really good. So I just need to add this recipe hear in my blog. You should try them too 🙂 By the way, when I made them, I didn’t have bread crumbs, that’s why I used oat brans. But it didn’t change the taste, just made meatballs healthier.
