Method

30 mins
 

Preheat your oven to 200ºC.


Put your bread and milk in a shallow dish and allow to soften.


Mix together all the meatball ingredients, except the apricots and season well with salt and pepper.


Squeeze out the excess milk from your bread and add to the meat mixture. 


Mix thoroughly.


Take about a tablespoon of mixture and roll into a ball.


Flatten into a disc and then place a dried apricot quarter in the centre. 


Enclose the apricot with the meat mixture and roll into a ball. 


The mixture should make between 16 and 20 balls.


Heat up a large non-stick frying pan and add the sunflower oil. 


Fry the meatballs, in batches until nicely browned, for about 6–8 mins.


Place the meatballs in an ovenproof dish.


Whisk together the topping ingredients, saving the bay or lemon leaves, and then pour over your meatballs.


Tuck the leaves in between your balls and sauce.


Bake for about 20 mins or until golden.
