Being January has had the household eating more healthily today we decided on the hairy dieters meatballs in tomato sauce. Which start off with finely grated carrot and half a medium chopped onion. The colours using
a red onion seemed a vibrant pleasing start.
After the mixture was hand squidged together I went in with the meatball maker. Well it worked perfectly. Compacted the meat well and uniform shapes and even made the recommended 24 balls like the recipe said. There is a single hole in each of the 2 cups which help with the removal I would imagine and do leave a couple of bumps in the meatballs but a little press as you put the balls down solve this problem.
Not the best picture below colour wise but the meat balls all survived browning and tossing around in a pan and simmering in their sauce for a long time, held their shape but did not become hard and bouncy.
Best of all the kids were impressed with the meal and I wouldn't of rated it as a dieters plate of food. Really felt as if I had eaten an indulgent satisfying meal. Now to try try these wonders out on cookie dough to see if they perform as well with that :o)
