I’m usually against improvising in the kitchen, but there are things which can be altered in a ‘traditional’ recipe. This is healthier because the meatballs are not fried in oil, but cooked in the oven, using a non-stick baking paper. Again, if you really like a certain ingredient you can add extra: i.e. meat, onion, etc. I personally put lots of dill, because it gives a nice flavour. This is the way I make my meatballs:

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 800 g minced meat (mixed beef and or or pork and or or lamb)
  • 1 big onion, diced
  • 3 garlic cloves, smashed
  • 1 egg
  • 70 g tomato puree
  • Various herbs

  • dill, parsley, cayenne pepper, curry powder
  • salt and pepper


  1. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Make small ovals using your hands, slightly wet.
  3. Put them on non-stick baking paper in a pre-heater oven at 180 minutes for 40 minutes or until they look crispy.
  4. Serve with salad, flat bread or pita bread, mustard.
