|400.00 g||beef mince — topside|
|1.00||onion — chopped|

Preheat the oven to 200 °C.
Cook the lentils in boiling water until tender and drain well.
Mix the cooked lentils with the remaining ingredients, adding enough oat bran to form meatballs.
Make 24 meatballs and arrange them on a lightly greased baking sheet.
Bake for about 40 minutes or until done but not dry.
Turn them halfway through the cooking time.
