Easy Meatballs

Dboz Lyfe


My late Mum's famous meatballs. Posted for Pat as requested on my Slow Cooker Meatballs recipe.

So many friends and family love these meatballs we get many requests to make them. They are so simple to make! Hope you like them too.

This recipe is for grilled meatballs but if cooking them in the slow cooker you dont have to cook them first if you prefer not to.

Add herbs and spices as you like.
