Cook's notes

Oven temperatures are for conventional; if using fan-forced (convection), reduce the temperature by 20˚C. | We use Australian tablespoons and cups: 1 teaspoon equals 5 ml; 1 tablespoon equals 20 ml; 1 cup equals 250 ml. | All herbs are fresh (unless specified) and cups are lightly packed. | All vegetables are medium size and peeled, unless specified. | All eggs are 55-60 g, unless specified.


1. To make Meatballs, combine all ingredients in a bowl. With wet hands, roll mixture into walnut size balls. Place on a prepared tray and chill for 20 minutes.

2. Preheat oven to 200C or 180C fan. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Spray meatballs with oil and bake for 15 minutes, until cooked through.

3. Meanwhile, heat milk and cream cheese in a small saucepan on low, stirring until cream cheese has melted. Stir in lemon juice. Add fetta, a little at a time, whisking, until cheese has melted, before adding more. Remove from heat and stand for 5 minutes until sauce thickens slightly. Stir through mint and serve with meatballs.
