Porky Piggy Meatball and Mozzarella Rolls
  1. To make the meatballs, heat the oil in a frying pan and gently fry the onion for 3 minutes before adding the garlic and chilli and frying for another couple of minutes. Stir regularly so that it does not burn
  2. In a food processor whiz the bread into breadcrumbs and then add the ham and blend further
  3. Mash together the sausage meat, ham, bread, onion mix, egg and salt and pepper until it all comes together. Shape the mixture into 16 balls, set aside on a plate and chill for 20 minutes
  4. Preheat the oven to 180’C
  5. Once chilled, roll the meatballs in a little oil and bake in an oven proof dish for 25-30 minutes, until golden
  6. To make the sauce, heat the oil in a little oil and gently fry the garlic for a minute. Add the remaining ingredients, bring to the boil and then simmer until ready to serve, stirring occasionally.
  7. Once the meatballs are cooked, lightly toast the cobs and then on the flatter half, load 4 meatballs onto each and divide up the sauce. Top with the mozzarella and place back under the grill to melt the cheese. Top with salad and the other half of the roll.
  8. Enjoy as a tasty lunch or with chips and salad for a larger meal
