Italian Meatballs

Updated: May 25, 2023

A delicious cheesy twist on the classic Italian meatball, serve up alongside spaghetti or even on a baguette or sub!

We have a huge range of meatball seasonings, from Italian and Spanish to BBQ, Moroccan and Sweet Chilli. All easy to use, simply add the mix to minced meat.



  • 400g Beef mince

  • 400g Pork Mince

  • 100g Mild Italian Meatball Mix

  • 5 babybels (cut each into 4 pieces) - other cheese can be used, approx 5-10g per meatball.

  • 120ml water (chilled)

  • 400ml chopped tomatoes

  • 1tbsp minced garlic

  • 1tbsp Italian mixed herbs


  1. Add the mince to a large bowl along with the seasoning and water, mix until fully combined, leave aside to marinate for at least half an hour.

  2. Weigh the mince into 50g portions, wrapping the meat around the chunk of cheese until fully covered, roll into balls.

  3. Cook the meatballs in a pan, browning on all sides.

  4. In a separate pan, add the tomatoes, garlic & mixed herbs, transfer the meatballs to this pan and simmer for approx 10 minutes or until cooked through.

  5. Serve alongside spaghetti or your favourite type of pasta, or pile into a sandwich.

Additional Tips:

  • The colder the meat and water, the better the appearance and life of the meatball.

  • Leave meatball in the fridge overnight to allow the herbs and spices to marinade with the meat

  • Dont forget to use Tongmaster meatball trays to store your meatballs that allow your meatballs to hold their shape.
