Ingredients

  • 750g lean Quality Mark beef mince
  • ¼ cup fresh wholemeal breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 3 spring onions, trimmed and finely chopped
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley or 1 Tbsp dried
  • 4 large gherkins, finely chopped (optional)
  • ½ cup tomato sauce
  • 150g packet potato chips, crushed
  • Bamboo skewers or butcher’s sticks, to serve

Method

Preheat the oven to 200ºC.

In a bowl mix together the beef mince, breadcrumbs, egg, spring onions, parsley, gherkins if using, and tomato sauce. Season with salt and pepper if wished.

With wet hands, mould into 10 balls. Roll in the crushed potato chips to coat.

Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes until cooked and the chip coating is golden. Serve like a toffee apple, pierced with a bamboo skewer or butcher’s stick, with plenty of tomato sauce on the side.
