Healthier meatballs in oven

Helloooo!!! Although Valentine's day is approaching I am not going to post a recipe for cakes to sweeten your days. I have something more filling and less "cheesy" :) 
So here it is my recipe for meatballs done in a healthier way - meaning no frying. 

Ingredients: 


  • 500 gr minced meat (whatever you prefer, I had pork)
  • 2 eggs
  • 6-7 cloves of garlic
  • one small onion
  • one carrot
  • 2-3 potatoes, depends how big they are
  • spices :) 




The potatoes are grated and then pressed between hands to release the water from them. 
The carrot and onion are boiled, garlic is just minced. 
In the mean time, you pre-heat the oven at about 150 degrees C. So now it comes to the messy part of mixing all these ingredients together, add the eggs in the end, and of course as many spices as you please. 




Then I made more or less equal meat balls and placed them on baking paper, in a tray. 




I left them in the oven for about 30-40 min at 200 degrees C. 
They become golden and the are simply delicious. 

The result: 




They can served as they are, they work like snack for beer, or next to some garnish or salad. 

The only downside to this process, is that you would have to roll them a bit in the tray when they are getting done, otherwise they will be flat on one side :) 


Bon App├ętit!
