Recipe: IFD at Home’s Meatballs

Makes: 50


  • 2.5kg pork and veal mince
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • ½ cup parmesan shaved
  • ¼ cup shredded cheese
  • GF breadcrumbs, to taste (tip very little just enough to bind)
  • 1 egg
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Paprika, to taste
  • Parsley, chopped to garnish


  1. Combine mince, tomato paste, dijon mustard, garlic, cheeses, breadcrumbs and egg in a large bowl, season to taste.
  2. Roll mixture into 50 balls, measuring roughly 40g each. Set in the fridge on a tray for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 180C.
  3. Heat a pat of butter and some neutral oil in a frypan. Pan fry the meatballs on medium heat until golden before baking in oven for 12-15 minutes or until cooked through.
  4. If you are serving with spaghetti, cook the pasta in a large saucepan of boiling water while the meatballs are in the oven.
  5. Serve with Napolitana sauce and a garnish of chopped parsley
