We had meatballs for tea.
Not ordinary meatballs, but child friendly crispy roast chicken ones.
This is the meat I picked off last nights leftover roast chicken. Doesn’t seem like much does it? But it’s about to make 27 tasty things.
I threw it into the Food Processor and George pressed the button to smoosh it up.
He likes that bit.
Then, bonus, in the freezer I had stashed some spare breadcrumbs and minced fried onion leftover from some previous culinary experiment.
So in went a couple of tablespoons of each of those.
Then we added an egg.
Here’s George ‘egg modelling’.
We bought these on the way back from school from a lady down the road who has put a sign outside her house offering ‘Free Range Eggs For Sale’.
Aren’t they pretty?
Once George pressed the button a few more times it looked like this:
Well the truth is it looked a bit drier than this so we added a 2nd egg until it looked nice and mouldable. This is the point that you should put the mix in the fridge to firm up for an hour or more. I didn’t, hence mine ended up not-so-spherical.
We added some salt, pepper and chicken seasoning too. Then I rolled them up into balls.
By this time George had got bored and wandered off.
I rolled it in some of my ready seasoned flour. How organised is that?
You could fry them at this stage but I decided to TAKE IT TO THE MAX.
Well, take-it-to-the-Panko to be more accurate.
I dipped them into beaten egg then in lovely crunchy panko bread crumbs.
Here they are frying in some hot Trex. Oil would do, but I do like a bit of Trex.
We had them with pasta n sauce for tea.
