ALMOND MINCE BALLS – Gluten Free

This recipe was in a Kraft Vegemite recipe booklet and have the unusual combination of vegemite and crunch peanut butter, not two ingredients you’d expect to find in a meatball. But from a gluten free perspective the peanut butter is a great substitute for flour to hold the meatball together and the almond coating does the same thing and adds a crunch.  Worth a try?

CHRISTMAS LEFTOVERS – Turkey/Ham Spread or Dip

This is the last of the Herald Sun’s ‘Second time around’ ideas for Christmas leftovers I’m posting today, but it’s a good one.  Turkey or ham with mayonnaise and sweet chilli sauce and mustard to give it a tang and celery for a crunch.  I think leftover chicken would work just as well too.

LITTLE MEATBALLS and BEB’S TOMATO SAUCE

There’s nothing too unusual about these Little Meatballs, it’s more their size. As the recipe says they’re quite versatile, you can put them a pasta sauce or sweet and sour sauce.  You could even serve them with a dipping sauce as a nibble or pop them in the kids lunchbox.  I’ve included Mum’s Tomato Sauce for Mince Balls recipe as I think it goes well with them.  Enjoy………..

PATE

You can see from the typing that this is an old recipe. I used to make it back in the 70s and 80s and serve it as an entree with thin slices of toast.   It was cheap and easy to make – ideal.  I rediscovered it this year and now make it to have with drinks.  It freezes well so I just put out what I need and keep the rest for later.  If you don’t want to do that you can easily halve the recipe.
