Meat balls with my little chef #FRD2014

May 8, 2014

Are you part of the Food Revolution Day #FRD2014 campaign  yet?  It is a wonderful project that Jamie Oliver is leading.  In case you are not familiar about it yet, I invite you to visit the website where you will find all you need to know about May 16th: 

It is worldwide.  100 countries and 105,000 participants have already signed up for Food Revolution Day! There are different ways to be part of it.  It does not have to be big, it can be something you are doing at home, at school or at work and share it with #FRD2014. 

My Food Revolution Series started with our little garden to get our kids more conscious as to where the vegetables come from and how it grow.  They are so impatient to see starting to grow, they have been watering it everyday and our son is asking when the cucumbers will be ready to eat.  Not as yet!

Today, I want to share with you a cooking session with my son!  We made meat balls.  He really enjoy it, adding all the ingredients together.

He was so proud to help me and wear his little apron.  He was not scared to get his hands in the meat.

He was really taking seriously the tasks given and showing me with pride and asking me if it was très bien (very good) like this.  Each meat balls was dedicated to a person and his little sisters got baby meat balls as he said.

My little chef loved cooking with his Maman, I involved him in the making, showing him how important he was.

Needless to say that they were really good, perfectly moist in the inside and a little crunchy in the outside.  We ate them with pastas and steamed green beans.

Meat balls

Yield: 24 meats balls


  • - 6 cloves of garlic, minced
  • - 2 eggs, beaten
  • - 2 slices of bread, crumbled
  • - 1 cup of parsley
  • - 1 teaspoon of salt
  • - 1kg of ground beef


  1. - In a big bowl, put all the ingredients together and mix well with your hands.
  2. - Start forming balls (size of a golf ball) until there is no meat left.
  3. - In a pan, cook at medium heat until the meat balls are fully cooked. The outside will appear crunchy. (I do not add any oil or butter)
  4. - Another cooking suggestion: Cook in a tomato sauce, low heat, for 40-45 minutes.
  5. - Serve with pasta or vegetables.
