  • I find each time I make this

    I find each time I make this the meatballs are not cooked properly in time required. I've added another 8mins in cooking time tonight to get it right. I think next time I'll make 1/2 golf ball size to see if that helps.

    Great flavour, however my husband complained it was too salty so I will put less chicken stock, more water next time. Thank you!
