Everyone loves a great meatball recipe and they are so versatile in the kitchen. Instead of cooking the meatballs in the oven, drop them carefully into a wide, deep pot of marinara sauce.... Mix things up by substituting 1lb (500g) lean ground turkey or chicken for the ground beef as a lighter alternative.

  • 1 lb (500g) lean ground beef
  • 1 small onion, finely diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup (30g) buckwheat flour
  • ¼ cup coriander, chopped
  • 1 tsp. oregano
  • 12 slices streaky bacon



Preheat the oven to 400F (200C).

Place all the ingredients apart from the bacon in a bowl, season with salt and pepper and mix well using your hands. Once everything is well combined, form 12 meatballs the size of a golf ball (use a ¼ cup for measuring).

Wrap each meatball in a slice of bacon and place on a baking sheet. Bake for 20 mins. For the last 4-5 mins set the oven to grill/broil to crisp the outside.
