You can prepare these ahead of time. I love doing these in the morning and then leaving them in the fridge ready to cook.
The Kids love them and you can sneak in any veggies you want!
500 grams of Chicken mince
60 grams of Cheese grated (Tasty, Fetta or Haloumi – or can be left out)
2 Tablespoons of freshly chopped parsley
½ Cups of wholemeal breadcrumbs
1 Large Shallot, chopped finely
1 Clove of Garlic, crushed
2 teaspoons of paprika, I use sweet as they kids don’t like the hot one
1 Carrot, finely grated
1 Zucchini, finely grated
Olive Oil for frying
Alternative veggies: corn, broccoli, green beans, sweet potato
Grate, chop, crush and sprinkle all ingredients together and mix well. Use your hands makes it easier and quicker.
Form into balls, I usually use a tablespoon to scoop out and roll in to a ball and slightly flatten.
Fry in a pan of hot oil until golden brown and turn.
Place on paper towel to drain excess oil.
