Meatball frenzy no 1 - Italian meatballs

Two different types of meatballs the past week, both good but in different ways. First out - Big Italian style meatballs in tomatoe sauce!

You need minced beef, onion, garlic, herbs like thyme, oregano, basil and pepper.

Chop the onion and the garlic into tiny little pieces and put in a bowl with the meat.

Add salt, pepper, herbs and 1 dl of cream. Also add 2 eggs to the mix.

Mix everything and let settle for 30 mins. Then roll big meatballs.

Fry the meatballs in a big chunk of butter at the same time as you let some broccoli and cauliflower boil in lightly salted water.

Add two cans of crushed tomatoes, together with some more herbs, salt and garlic salt. More cayenne pepper if you like it a bit spicy.

Let it simmer until you are happy with the flavour of the sauce.

Serve with either boiled vegatables or something else that you like :)
