Mums Swedish Meatballs!

My mum calls this recipe Swedish Meatballs. I don't know what make them Swedish, but its a cool name so I am going to stick with it :)

Ok so you need:
1 large carrot, grated
1kg Sausage Mince
About half cup breadcrums
1 egg
2 cans tomato soup
Anything extra you want to add, grated zucchini for example
Salt and Pepper - of course!

This is how you do it:

1 - Put your grated carrot in a bowl with your sausage mince bread crumbs egg and any extras. Season with salt and pepper.

2 - Squish it all together with your hands until its all combined. This is really fun, maybe a good one to get the kids to help with!

3 - Roll meat mixture into meatball sizes.

4 - Brown edges in a frying pan with a little bit of oil. Do this in batches so you don't over crowd your pan.

5 - Put all the meatballs back into the frying pan, and add 2 cans tomato soup to the pan.

6 - Bring to the boil, then allow to simmer until the meatballs are cooked through - about 30 minutes, depending on how big you make them.

7 - Serve with rice, mashed potato or whatever else you would like.

8 - Clean up - this is the bad part!

Note: I sometimes add some dried mixed herb if I have them and remember to the meatball mixture.
