Oh my goodness! I’m on book 3 part 2 of Game of Thrones and I’m finally getting to stuff that hasn’t happened on TV. My lips are sealed (unless you are my husband who is now telling me to shut up) but it’s so exciting, it’s hard to put down. If it wasn’t for Mr S these posts might be fish finger sarnies every day.
As much as I love meatballs, this one didn’t do much for me. I probably cooked the meatballs a bit too long as they were a tad dry. Not only that, the seasonings in it were a bit off for me. I’m not sure about the buttermilk mixture either.
Don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t awful, I’ve just had better.
This one came from the BBC Good Food magazine for September. I noticed also that 5 Kinds of Rice made her version here, hers is a a little bit more colourful than mine.
Mix mince, onion, chives, buttermilk, garlic, parmesan, tabasco and Worcestershire sauce well and shape into small meatballs (about 20).
Cook for 8 minutes then tear a ciabatta into pieces and place between the meatballs then cook for about 8 minutes or until your meatballs are done.
Mix buttermilk, parmesan, tabasco, Worcestshire sauce, lemon juice and seasoning in a bowl.
Arrange shredded lettuce in a bowl then toss in some of the buttermilk mixture. Add the meatballs and croutons then drizzle with some more.
If I was to make these again I wouldn’t throw all of the sauces into the mix, I’d probably leave out the Worcestershire and instead of buttermilk I’d use yoghurt or sour cream and as 5 Kinds of Rice did, I’d add tomatoes.
They made a hell of a mess on the baking tray too.
This was dinner…16th August 2013.
