Well the title says it all, these are literally the most delicious thing you will put in your mouth this week, if not this month! They really are amazing meatballs
I have never been a fan of meatballs before this recipe came into my life but now it is absolutely my go to “take a plate” recipe.
The flavours are amazing and they are totally moreish, perfect hot or cold you will be finding excuses to make these little nuggets of deliciousness.
It is hard to make meatballs look beautiful in photos so you will just have to take my word for it and make them soon, the main photos are on my phone so not ideal but better than nothing.
To make these meatballs you will need
lean beef mince
parsley (or coriander)
The meatballs themselves are pretty simple yet tasty but the magic is in the sauce – again containing pretty basic ingredients but together they just sing! I am not a huge onion fan so I halve the onion and chop it super fine but you can use a large onion as per recipe.
For the delicious sauce you will need
sweet chilli sauce
I got this one from my Mum and the recipe is from a church fundraising book called Practical Recipes for busy homes. There is a bit of assembly required but boy is it worth it!
Consider making double the recipe if for a large group – you will need two roasting dishes to do that or make in two batches. It is totally worth the effort of rolling balls etc trust me!
If you are a fan of meatballs, try these ones – lovely rich Sticky Asian Meatballs
Here is the recipe for these amazing meatballs.
As you can see this really is an easy recipe but the flavours will impress! I love taking these as an appetiser, but they are just as perfect on the table for a main meal or used as nibbles before the meal. You will just have to make them yourselves to see what I am raving about!

Want to make these but can’t seem to find “sausage meat” Do you squeeze filling out of sausages? Or could I use pork mince as a substitute?
Yes you can absolutely squeeze sausage meat out of your favourite sausages.
I have a husband who is a very good cook, I always struggle to find new recipes to make on the days he comes home late and I am “on” in the kitchen. These meatballs were a HUGE hit! Not just with my husband, but other family members! Will definitely make these again and again. We give them a 5 out of 5!
That is fabulous! I am so pleased you enjoyed this recipe.
Theses were so tasty .my husband loved them .great for family gathering.
Going to make some for the freezer yummy!!
I cooked mine in the sauce in the oven and they turned out great, my hubby loved them. Served them over some spaghetti squash.easy and yummy.
Would these meatballs freeze well? Or would the sauce make them mushy when reheated? I’m looking for recipes I can cook and then divide into portions for the freezer, just for a quick reheat dinner for someone. Thanks
Yes you can, quickly cool them them place in an airtight container. When you wish to enjoy them thaw them overnight in the refrigerator and when you want to heat them pop them in a saucepan and heat until the meatballs are piping hot.

I am definitely going to make these but my ex husband (and best friend….go figure) does not like Fruit Chutney can I just leave it out or is there a substitute?
It just adds sweetness, so you could always strain out the fruit bits and try just the sauce but of the chutney.
Silly question but what type of vinegar do you use? Cheers
Not silly! I should have it in there. Malt Vinegar, I’ll amend recipe xx
Just remembered I forgot to let u know the verdict! These meatballs truely are amazing! My 13 year who is quite fussy about trying new things loved them!! I’ve since passed the recipe on to my mum who used it to feed a crowd and they all loved it too! Making again this week, but for today, I’m making ur weetbix slice , great for lunch boxes ?
Awesome! I’m so pleased you are all enjoying them ?
happy singing dancing tastebuds – this is delicious!
Yay!!! That’s what I think each time lol Thank you ?
I’m gonna make these tonight! I just love your recipes!! I love cooking and baking but I’ve never made meatballs! What would you serve them with if doing for a main meal?
They are delicious in fresh tortillas with salad and hummus etc. otherwise make extra sauce and serve with rice and salad. Let me know what you think and thank you for your kind words ?
This recipe has fast become a family favorite. So Easy kids make the meat balls while I work on the sauce. Tasty Fast Thank you
You are welcome, and I love that the kids help out! ?

Visiting from the Blog Fair Link Party!
These look delicious. The sauce sounds divine – and not too difficult to make. I love making meatballs in the oven or crock pot, trying to fry them just gets messy! Thanks for sharing on the Blog Fair Link Party at mummydoit.co.nz
Thanks Karen, it is so tasty, I must get the ingredients in my next shop and make it again 🙂 Thanks for stopping by
