Meatball Winter Warmer

Now that the weather is turning colder (and the rain keeps falling) we want nothing more than to curl up in the evenings under a blanket, with a glass of (mulled) wine and some comfort food.   So we’ve decided to revisit one our favourite Meatball Winter Warmer recipe to warm you up…
Ingredients 
Makes 2
150/200g minced beef
1 tsp oregano
Healthy sprinkling of paprika
Healthy sprinkling of dry coriander leaves
Pinch of ground pepper
Pinch of salt
1 slice granary bread
1 egg yolk
1 ball of mozzerella
Knob of garlic butter
100g chopped tomatoes
Mixed dry herbs
2 multi-seeded rolls
Method
-       Make the breadcrumbs for the meatball by taking the slice of granary bread and rub it together so that crumbs form, make sure you have a mixing bowl to catch the falling crumbs
-       Cut two generous cubes from the ball of mozzarella ready to put inside the meatballs
-       Next combine the minced beef, breadcrumbs, oregano, paprika, dry coriander leaves, seasoning and combine together with the egg yolk
-       Once the mixture is held firmly together, take the mince mixture and roll into two large balls
-       Make a well (use your finger to push down in the centre of the minced ball) and place the cubed mozzarella in the centre – one cube per ball
-       Now roll into two full meatball shapes
-       Heat some oil in a frying pan – fry the meatballs on a low heat until browned on all sides
-       While the meatballs are cooking make the tomato sauce; place chopped tomatoes in a small saucepan and season, also add some herbs and the garlic butter (be as generous as you like)
-       Cook the tomato sauce until heated thoroughly and turn off the heat
-       When the meatballs are ready cut in half the fresh seeded roll and spoon the tomato sauce on the bread, then add the meatball (cut in half)
-       This is yummy for a winter lunch or snack – that melted mozzarella meatball in its garlic tomato sauce and fresh bread is just pure comfort heaven!
