'Lady and the Tramp' sausage meatballs

Sausage meatballs

Did you know that pork mince leads to a much more moist meatball than it’s beef counterpart? And, we’ve taken the hard work out for you!

Our Caramelised Porkers make a marvellous meatball, for a Valentine’s Day dinner worthy of Lady and the Tramp themselves. Watch the video here

Ingredients

1 pack Jolly Hog Caramelised Porker, removed from skins
1 large white onion or two small ones, chopped
3 cloves garlic, crushed
1 red chilli, finely chopped
1 tin chopped tomatoes
300ml vegetable stock
1 tbsp Tomato puree
1 tbsp dried oregano
1 tbsp dried basil
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
Spaghetti
Parmesan
Fresh Basil

Instructions

  • Use ½ a sausage for each meatball, and roll into a ball. Fry over a medium heat, in a little oil, until  the outsides begin to brown. Remove meatballs from the pan, and leave aside until the sauce is ready.

  • In the same pan, fry onions until they begin to soften. Then add the garlic and chilli with the oregano, dried basil, salt  and pepper.

  • Add the tomato paste, stock and chopped tomatoes (add more than one tin if you prefer a wet sauce) and simmer for approx 30 minutes over a medium-low heat.

  • Add the meatballs back into the sauce and cook for a further 15 minutes, checking that the meatballs are cooked through.

  • Serve with spaghetti, grated parmesan and fresh basil.

Jolly Midweek Roast

Take the palaver out of midweek meals, with a simple traybake. Jolly Hog streaky bacon, wrapped around chicken and baked with potatoes and vegetables. Easy peasy.

Ingredients

1 pack Jolly Hog streaky bacon

4 chicken breasts

500g baby potatoes

½ pack green beans

16 cherry tomatoes

1 lemon

3 cloves garlic, roughly crushed

150ml white wine

Dried oregano, salt, black pepper

Instructions (video here)

🐽Start by washing and cutting the potatoes, before placing in a deep roasting dish. Season and coat in a little oil, then put in the oven at 200C for about 25 mins, until they  start to brown a little.

🐽Whilst the potatoes are in the oven, chop the green beans and cut lemons into wedges.

🐽Wrap the streaky bacon around the chicken breasts (three rashers per breast), and place into the roast tray so that none are touching.

🐽Add in green beans and tomatoes, garlic, lemon wedges and white wine.

🐽Sprinkle with oregano and season with salt and pepper to taste.

🐽Bake in the oven at 180C for 30 mins, until the chicken is cooked through and the bacon starts to crisp.

These are pots of pure joy, everything you need to tick the ‘I’m really hungry’ box. Our kids love squashing the bread flat so it’s a good one to keep them occupied for 5 minutes on a Saturday morning!
