    Absolutely fantastic- love and favourite

    A-MAZ-ING!!! 🤤 Absolutely loved these meatballs, they were the most tasty I’ve ever had. The variations of grating the onion, soaking the bread in it and not blitzing the bread into breadcrumbs really made a difference to the texture and taste. Will be making these again very soon.

    My partner and I made this recipe tonight and it is by far one of the best meatball recipes we have had . The trick of soaking bread in onions works so well and the sauce is amazing . Also baking the meatballs was a more healthy option but did not detract from the flavour !
