Hello Dear Reader,
I went to and from work by train today. The low lying farmland either side of the train was water logged; the water courses and rivers had burst their banks and the brown murky water flooded the valleys. We’re due another storm, high seas, high tides, heavy rain and yet more floods. Worse is yet to come. With weather like this, we need all the warmth a hot meal meal can comfort us with.
These are officially the world’s easiest meatballs.
To make them, you will need:
3 sausages with the skin removed 99p
250g of minced beef 1.00
1 onion, finely chopped (mine were not chopped finely enough but I was too hungry to care!) 4p
3 tablespoons of instant gravy.5p
1. Heat the oven to 180.
2. Mix the sausage meat, mince and onions.
3. Squish together with your hands until well mixed.
4. Form into small balls (they cook more quickly)
5. Cook for half an hour.
6. Make the gravy as directed.
7. Pour onto meatballs.
8. Return to the oven for ten minutes.
I purposefully cooked more cabbage and mash than required. I now have enough to make into bubble and squeak for breakfast in the morning.
I poured the gravy over the meatballs to soak up some of the fat and meat juices. The whole meal was unctuous and bone warming. Steamed savoy cabbage and hot buttery mash completed the entire supper.
Over to you Dear Reader, who else has adverse weather? Who else needs to eat wholesome and hearty food to get through one cold wet day after the next? I see that the weather has drastically cooled in Australia and that parts of America are still soooooo cold! Here, it’s just wet!
Whatever the weather, you’ve got to try these meatballs!
