School is back, yay!! Hang on did I write that or think that?? I always enjoy school holidays but I also enjoy when they go back too. My little magpie has decided she doesn’t like sandwiches anymore so this afternoon I tried to get a bit organised for school lunches and have cooked up a storm. This recipe is a winner and so easy.

Magpies lunchbox meatballs.

Turn oven on to 180 degrees and spray a mini muffin tray.

  • 500-600g chicken mince. (I asked my butcher to mince 2 thighs and a breast for me)
  • 6-8 mushrooms (6-8) minced
  • Two carrots grated.
  • Garlic clove
  • Three handfuls of rolled outs (about one cup)
  • 1 egg
  • Big handful of grated cheese
  • Squirt of barbecue sauce

Magpies meatballsChuck it all in the food processor and whiz till well combined. Using a tablespoon or big dessertspoon, scoop mixture into min muffin tray. Smooth over the top so they look nice (or not!)

Throw them in the oven for 10-15 minutes or until nicely browned.

Obviously you can ditch the BBQ sauce if you prefer and if you really don’t like oats you could use old fashioned breadcrumbs (fresh made though please) or almond meal. You can put as many veges as you like in too, which is the idea of whizzing it all. So they have a lovely smooth texture and the kids don’t even realise they are eating a balanced meal in one meatball!
