Method

  1. Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. In a large bowl, combine the onion, carrot, half the garlic and half the rosemary with the turkey and some seasoning. Shape into 16 meatballs and put in a small baking tray. Toss the potatoes with the remaining garlic, rosemary and the oil, place in a baking tray, then cook both for 20 mins, with the potatoes on top shelf.

  2. After 20 mins, drain juices off the meatballs, pour cherry tomatoes over, sprinkle with the Parmesan and season. Toss the potatoes, and swap to bottom shelf with the potatoes on top. Cook for another 20 mins until the potatoes are crisp and the meatball sauce is bubbling.

  3. When the potatoes and meatballs are almost done, cook the broccoli for 3-4 mins, until tender. Sprinkle the basil on top of the meatballs and serve with the crispy potatoes and broccoli.

I added paprika to the meatballs from reading the comments below. I also added tomato puree when I added the tinned tomatoes and added some water too as the tinned tomatoes did not cover all the meatballs.
the potatoes were brilliant

The meatballs lacked flavour which was disappointing. The potatoes were lovely as I added crushed fresh garlic to them whilst cooking. The broccoli didn't do much for the dish either. Not bad though!

I just made this for dinner and it 2 as a bug hit :) I had to add some sweet potato because I didn't have enough normal spuds but it just made it nicer. Saved to my page I'll be eating this again for sure

Just came back to this recipe to make for the 2nd time. Everyone loved it - the kids even ate the broccoli without complaint. To speed things up I grated the onion and carrot in a food proccessor then added everything else to mix through. Everything was on the table in about 30-40 minutes - a miracle!

Delicious, good way of getting some carrots into the kids! Beef and pork mince mixture is just as tasty :-)

A good wholesome meal and fun to make your own meatballs if you haven't before.

Very flavourful for such a healthy meal, I think I overcooked my meatballs as were slightly dry and therefore 1 can of chopped tomatoes did not provide enough sauce for my liking, but we also used 500g of mince as couldn't find 350g and no use wasting it! Next time I will blitz the veg in the processor as so much quicker. The potatoes were fab, wonderfully crispy, yum!

I thought this was great. Good for children and I even left out the seasoning and blitzed it for my baby who is weaning (we then added the seasoning after). We all really enjoyed it.

Just made this for a midweek family meal and we really enjoyed it. I did put plenty of seasoning in and it was tasty and I loved the cherry tomatoes although I used fresh ones. The combination of the crispy potatoes and brocolli was really nice.

Really lovely meatball recipe - I blitzed all the onion, carrot, rosemary and garlic in a food processor before combining with the turkey mince. For the sauce, I used tinned cherry tomatoes with some added tomato puree and chilli flakes.

These aren't bland if you remember to season them! :)

Made this with lean minced beef, but equally tasty! Also didn't have tinned cherry toms so just used standard tinned chopped tomatoes. Only downside is the potatoes seemed to be ready sooner than the meatballs so would cut these a but bigger next time to compensate.

I added an egg to the meatballs to help them stay together and some chilli flakes for a kick.
Also used passata for the sauce with some added basil, instead of the tomatoes.
I've made these several times and they are really tasty and healthy :-)
