Easy Pork And Beef Meatballs

Meatballs, whether you serve them Italian style with pasta, tomato sauce and parmesan cheese or Swedish style with cream sauce, mashed potatoes and lingonberry jam, these savoury little spheres of beefy porky goodness are always epic.

You will need:
4 butchers pork sausage
500g minced beef
1 small onion, grated
2 cloves of garlic, crushed
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp dried oregano
A good pinch of salt and pepper
50g dry breadcrumbs
1 egg, beaten

1. Split the sausage skins and squeeze the meat into a large bowl.
2. Add in the beef, onion, garlic, herbs, salt, pepper, breadcrumbs and egg.
3. Mix and squeeze with your hands until everything is evenly distributed and the mixture has a fairly smooth consistency.
4. Roll the mixture into about 20 equally sized balls and spread out evenly on a roasting tin.
5. Place the tin in the fridge, to firm up the meatballs, and put the oven on to 200 degrees to preheat.
6. When the ovens up to temperature, take the trays out of the fridge, put them in the oven and cook the meatballs for 25 - 30 minutes, until they've browned.

Swap out the thyme, basil and oregano for 1tsp of dill to get a slightly anglicised, but still delicious, version of Swedish meatballs.
