Ingredients
  

  • 500 gm Pork Mince ground
  • 50 gm Panko crumbs or fresh white breadcrumbs
  • 1 clove garlic crushed
  • 1 whole Egg 70 gm
  • 100 gm Danish feta make sure it's not Greek feta
  • 1 tablespoon Oregano 3 tablespoons fresh chopped oregano
  • 500 gm x 2 jars of spaghetti sauce any flavour you like
  • 200 gm Cheese Use cheddar or a mixture of parmesan mozzarella and cheddar
  • 1/2 bunch basil leaves for serving
  • cups Lettuce or Flatbread

Instructions
 

  • Pre- heat the oven to 200 C / 400 F.
  • Have a baking dish ready. It needs to be at least 11 in / 28 cm long or round.
  • Use a medium sized bowl and add the mince, oregano, crumbs, egg and crumbled feta. Mix together well.
  • Shape the meat into even sized (walnut sized) balls straight into your baking dish. Once you have rolled them look over them to check the size spreading them into one single layer. They roll together very easily and rough is ok.
  • Pour over the two jars of spaghetti sauce sprinkle with the cheese and bake for 30 minutes. In a very hot oven this should be long enough. The cheese will be melted and the sauce bubbling. ( test one meatball). Sprinkle with extra herbs.
  • Serve these with lettuce cups, pita bread and toothpicks to eat straight from the dish.

Notes

Add whatever other flavours you like. Add more cheese, chilli, extra herbs or simply put this in the middle of the table as a serve yourself pasta sauce with a bowl of pasta.
