Meatballs for kids. Easy, quick and…yummy!

Searching to find a recipe that children would really love, I came across one which I think that every kid adores…


Honestly, I don’t know one little fellow that doesn’t like meatballs. Served either with fries or with pasta, in your kitchen…

or packed for the school or the road, meatballs are in the heart of every kid. So, today we cook meatballs, fried or grilled,

with tomato paste or not…


½ kg minced meat (beef)
1 onion mashed
½ tsp oregano

½ tsp freshly ground pepper
1 tsp salt
1 tsp mint
1 egg
4 bread slices, only the crumb
mint chopped(according to taste)
1 tsp white vinegar
1 tsp olive oil


In a large bowl, we mix all the ingredients together except the bread.

We soak the bread into water to soften and we squeeze with our hands very well until.

Then, we add it into the bowl. We mix the ingredients with our hands, very well.

We take small portions in our hands and we form small meatballs.

The actual size and form is up to us. Into a flat plate we sprinkle the flour.

We roll each meatball on the flour. Be careful to cover the entire meatball with the flour.

Now we are ready to fry them in a frying pan or in a fryer.

We can serve them with mashed potatoes, rice, spaghetti or French fries.


*1) Further step:

If we want, we can continue our recipe.

Once the meatballs are fried, we can dip them into a casserole with tomato sauce for 15 minutes.

Then we can use the sauce with the meatballs to serve our spaghetti.

*2) Further step:

Instead of frying our meatballs, we can put them in the oven with fat potato chunks.

In that case, we should give them a more flat form so that they can be grilled homogeneously.

If you don’t want them to dry in the grill, you must “brush” them with some olive oil from time to time.


Wait, there is more…

Alternatively, you could place the meatballs and the tomato sauce into a large pan

and sprinkle with Feta cheese. When they are ready, take them out of the oven

and sprinkle with some fresh basil. Trust me, the result will be superb and your kids are going to love it.

It is an easy and quick recipe for everyone.
