Dad’s Meatballs

Dad was on duty to make supper the one evening during their Easter visit and decided to make his scrumptious juicy meatballs.  I was hoping to get quantities for you but alas, ingredients was the closest I could get.  Dad says everything is all about feel, so you can add as much or as little of each ingredient to suite you.  I have put guestimates taken from watching dad at work.

Dad’s Meatballs


1kg ground beef
5 slices white break soaked in milk and excess liquid squeezed out
1 onion chopped
Handful flat leaf and moss curled parsley chopped
20ml spice of choice
15ml balsamic vinegar
15ml soya sauce
15ml Worcestershire sauce
Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Combine all the ingredients together in a ball and shape balls
  2. Place balls on a floured board and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  3. Fry the meatballs in very shallow oil over a medium heat.

This is the new spice dad found at Spar and it is a must buy – absolutely delicious!
