Delicious and simple. I chill the meatballs once cooked and they are perfect for a picnic lunch or dinner. I took to a shared picnic and my friends went straight to the supermarket to buy the ingredients and make them at home.

Hi there - firstly, apologies for the delay responding to your comment. This recipe was published in a bonus mini-mag called Healthy Kids that went out with the Oct 2006 issue.

Easy, healthy and kid friendly - this recipe ticks all the boxes for my young family. Another winner from Sophie Gray!

This recipe is a favourite for us. So quick and tasty. Leftovers are great for lunch the next day too :-)

Is the sweet chilli sauce to be mixed in with the meatball ingredients or put in the sandwich/burger after they are cooked?
