Meatballs with pancetta, mustard and oregano

Recipe (4 servings) ingredients:

  • 600g minced veal
  • 2 potatoes (medium size)
  • 6 slices of pancetta
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbs fresh oregano
  • 2 tbs mustard Dijon
  • 2 slices of bread
  • 100ml milk
  • 1 big onion finely chopped
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • salt, pepper

Cut the pancetta into small pieces and saute together with the onion for about 5 minutes. In the meantime, peel the potatoes and boil them in salted water. Once they become tender and soft, strain them and place them into a bowl. Add the onion and pancetta and mash all three ingredients together using a fork. In another bowl, pour the milk and soak the bread in it until the milk is fully absorbed. In a large mixing bowl add the minced meat, the mixture of mashed potatoes, pancetta and onion, the eggs, the soaked bread, the oregano and the mustard. Mix well until a homogeneous mixture is obtained. Season with salt and pepper. Fry the meatballs for only 15-20 seconds on each side in a frying pan (I use olive oil for that) and place them on a plate layered with oil-absorbing kitchen paper. Preheat the oven at 150°C. Layer the meatballs on a baking shit and place them in the oven. Let them cook for about 15-20 minutes. Serve with potato chips or sweet potatoes and some mustard to dip them in !
