Instructions
  1. In a bowl mix together the bread crumbs and milk. Let it rest for 5 minutes.
  2. In a large bowl mix all other ingredients except olive oil for greasing the pan. Add soaked bread crumbs and mix until everything is evenly mixed.
  3. Roll level 2 tablespoons of mixture into balls. Chill the meatballs in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes before baking.
  4. Preheat oven at 180°C for 10 minutes. Grease the baking tray with olive oil and place the meatballs about 1 cm apart. Bake for about 30 minutes or until browned and cooked through. Turn the meatballs halfway through cooking time to ensure even browning.
  5. Serve immediately.
  6. NOTE - Mix the ingredients until they are just combined. Overmixing makes the meatballs tough and rubbery.
  7. Cooked and cooled meatballs can be frozen for up to a few months.
  8. One cup = 250 ml, one tablespoon = 15 ml, one teaspoon = 5 ml.
