Recipe by joanna_giselle
READY IN: 1hr 20mins


  • 300
    g sausages (I used Greek loukanika but a mild Italian sausage is close in flavour)
  • 1
    tablespoon tomato paste
  • 34
    cup breadcrumbs (you may need a bit less depending on your meat)
  • 1
  • salt and pepper


  • Carefully cut the sausage casings and scrape out all the contents into a bowl.
  • Chop them so that they resemble mince and then add to the beef mince.
  • Add breadcrumbs, egg, tomato paste, salt, pepper and oregano to taste.
  • Combine very well with your hands making sure that you have incoorporated the sausage and the spices well.
  • Allow to sit for 30 minutes in the fridge (or overnight for best results).
  • Roll into long, oval-shaped meatballs and place in a greased baking tray.
  • Cook in a pre-heated oven at 180 degrees celcius for 40 minutes.
  • Serve with ketchup, mustard and a green salad. Yum!
