    Ingredients
    Makes: 20 meatballs

    • 4 butcher's pork sausage
    • 500g minced beef
    • 1 small onion, grated
    • 2 cloves of garlic, crushed
    • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
    • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil

    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. Place the tin in the fridge to firm up the meatballs.
    5. Preheat oven to 200 degrees C. When the oven comes up to temperature, take the trays out of the fridge, put them in the oven and cook the meatballs until browned, 25 to 30 minutes.

    Tip

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