Meatball & garlic bread traybake

Date:


Make this comforting meatball and garlic bread traybake for a dinner the whole family will enjoy. You could buy a pack of meatballs if you’re short on time

Ingredients

  • 350g turkey thigh mince
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp fennel seeds
  • 1½ tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 tbsp tomato purée
  • 2 x 400g cans chopped tomatoes
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 150g ball mozzarella, torn into pieces
  • 4 garlic breadsticks or garlic bread slices, torn or chopped into chunks
  • 25g cheddar, grated
  • green salad or spaghetti, to serve

Method

  • STEP 1

    Combine the mince, oregano, fennel seeds and some seasoning in a bowl. Take walnut-sized pieces of the mixture and roll into balls. Heat half the oil in a large, shallow ovenproof pan and cook the meatballs until browned all over – don’t worry if they’re not cooked through. Transfer to a plate. Heat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6.

  • STEP 2

    Heat the remaining oil in the pan and add the onion. Cook until softened, about 10-12 mins, stirring regularly. Stir in the garlic for another minute, then the tomato purée, chopped tomatoes and sugar.

  • STEP 3

    Simmer for 10-15 mins, then season to taste. Place the meatballs on top of the sauce, then add the mozzarella, garlic bread and the cheddar on top. Bake for 15-20 mins until golden and crisp.
