My ‘Mamma’ has been making this delicious recipe ever since I can remember. You know those special childhood meals that you really enjoyed and want to carry on the tradition for your kids? Well this is one of those for me and I wanted to share it with you!
It’s so easy to make and so extremely tasty. The kids love the little ‘surprise’ in the middle when they cut open their meatball and oozy cheese comes out! Mmmmm!
You will need:
500gms of mince (we use heart smart/lean mince)
2 x 400g cans of tomato soup
1/2 bunch parsley chopped
200gms cheese cut into cubes (mozzarella works best, but cheddar, tasty any cheese will work fine)
1 cup cooked rice (we use long grain)
salad to serve
Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees (celcius)
Cook rice according to packet directions and let cool
Add your mince to a large bowl and add the cooked rice & half of the parsley and mix well
Roll the mixture into palm size balls
Flatten your meatball and add a cube of cheese to the middle. Once added, complete rolling your meatball into a ball shape.
Add one can of the tomato soup to the bottom of a greased oven dish
Add all of your cheesed up meatballs to the oven dish
Cover with the remaining can of tomato soup
Garnish with a little of the parsley
Bake for 30 minutes or until cooked through
Serve with a lovely garden salad – it’s also yummy served with garlic bread
