Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Combine the mince, oregano, fennel seeds and some seasoning in a bowl. Take walnut-sized pieces of the mixture and roll into balls. Heat half the oil in a large, shallow ovenproof pan and cook the meatballs until browned all over – don’t worry if they’re not cooked through. Transfer to a plate. Heat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6.

  • STEP 2

    Heat the remaining oil in the pan and add the onion. Cook until softened, about 10-12 mins, stirring regularly. Stir in the garlic for another minute, then the tomato purée, chopped tomatoes and sugar.

  • STEP 3

    Simmer for 10-15 mins, then season to taste. Place the meatballs on top of the sauce, then add the mozzarella, garlic bread and the cheddar on top. Bake for 15-20 mins until golden and crisp.

RECIPE TIPS
CHEESY MEATBALL DOGS

Split hot dog buns, but not all the way through. Grill until golden and stuff with any leftover meatballs and sauce and scatter with grated cheese. Grill until the cheese melts.
