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.

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.
