I use this one a lot. I usually add mushrooms and zucchini. It's delicious. I've done it with chicken mince and pork/veal mince.

500g mince
1 egg
70g bread crumbs from day old bread
1 clove of garlic crushed
salt and pepper
flour, for dusting

Tomato Sauce
2 cans tomatoes
1 clove of garlic crushed
1 onion finely chopped
Olive oil

Combine all meatball ingredients except flour in a bowl and mix well. I find using your hands is best. Shape the mixture into walnut sized meatballs and roll in flour to coat.

Put a small amount of olive oil into frypan or wok and gently cook onion and garlic. Add meatballs and stir to brown all over. Add tinned tomatoes, bring to a boil and then simmer gently till meatballs are cooked - about 10 minutes.

Serve over pasta or rice.
