I Quit Sugar - Thai Chicken Burgers with Coriander Slaw

Meatballs are one of the greatest gifts to busy family life…

Not only are they super easy to whip up, but you can feed all the hungry tums in one swoop!

But if everyone’s a little sick of you famous spaghetti and meatballs, however, spice up your repertoire with these easy (not to mention delicious) recipes. They’re guaranteed to please the whole family…

Burger patties.

Meatballs? Yum. Burgers? Even better! Simply cook up your normal meatballs and pop them into a burger along with your fave accompaniments. We’re a big fan of our Thai Chicken Burgers with Coriander Slaw.


Did someone say pizza?! Once you’ve cooked up your meatballs, whipping together your very own Meat Lover’s Pizza will be faster than dialling up Dominos. Simply slice up your meat and sprinkle with a lil’ cheese and herbs. Yum!

San Choy Bau.

Our 10-minute San Choy Bau could be even faster when you pop in your pre-made meatballs! Slice ‘em up, add in the spices and dinner’s done. Who knew such a flavoursome feast could be so speedy?!

Lamb Meatballs with Garlic and Spinach.

If you’re looking to sneak some extra greens into your kid’s diet, this recipe is for you. Sautéing the spinach with the meatballs means the meat juices make everything super tasty. Serve this dish with a side of our Best Ever Creamy Mash for a match made in heaven.

Not-so-meaty meatballs.

Jump on the #MeatlessMonday bandwagon and swap out the mince in this recipe for tempeh or chickpeas! You may need an extra egg to bind it all together, but with all those herbs and spices, they’ll be as tasty as the real deal!

Cheat’s Sausage Meatballs.

For quick ‘n’ easy meatballs, simply remove the sausage casing and Bob’s your Uncle! These Cheat’s Sausage Meatballs are perfect in a meatball sub with a sprinkle of cheese.
