…for oven-baked meatballs with potatoes:
Peel and finely chop the onion. Also peel and finely chop the garlic. Put 750 grams of minced meat together with onions & garlic, 50 grams of breadcrumbs, 1 egg, 1 heaping tablespoon of mustard, 2 – 3 tablespoons of ketchup & a good pinch of salt & pepper in a mixing bowl & knead with your hands until all ingredients are evenly distributed. Set the mincemeat aside for a moment.
Preheat the oven to 220°C (top/bottom heat) in good time. Peel potatoes & cut into small pieces or cubes. Pluck the thyme & rosemary from the stems against the direction in which they grow, then chop finely with a knife. Put the potatoes & herbs in a casserole dish, season with salt & pepper & mix everything together briefly.
Form 8 – 10 balls of the same size from the minced meat mixture & place in the casserole dish with the potatoes. Put 200 milliliters of vegetable stock, 200 milliliters of cream & 1 heaping teaspoon of cornstarch in a tall container & whisk briefly with a whisk, then pour into the casserole dish with the potatoes.
Place the casserole dish in the preheated oven for 30 – 35 minutes, meanwhile finely grate 75 grams of Parmesan for gratinating. After about 30 minutes, take the casserole dish out of the oven, sprinkle the meatballs with Parmesan & put in the oven for another 15 – 20 minutes & bake until the potatoes are done.
Take the done meatballs out of the oven, then place on deep plates along with potatoes & creamy sauce & serve garnished with finely chopped parsley. Have fun cooking!
