Instructions

Prep the Potatoes
1
  • Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7.
  • Chop the potatoes into 2cm chunks (no need to peel). 
  • Pop the potatoes onto a large (lined) baking tray.
  • Drizzle with oil, season with salt and pepper then toss to coat. Spread out in a single layer (leaving room for the meatballs).
Make Your Meatballs
2
  • To a large bowl, add the beef mince, breadcrumbs, mustard and Worcester sauce.
  • Season with salt and pepper then mix everything together with your hands.
  • Once combined, form into evenly-sized meatballs, 5 per person. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw meat.
  • When the oven is hot, cook the potatoes and beef meatballs together for 15 mins.

TIP: Use two baking trays if necessary.

Simmer the Sauce
3
  • Meanwhile, place a pan over medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • Add the chopped tomato, 1 tsp sugar and 50ml water (double both for 4p). Simmer until slightly thickened, 5-7 mins.
  • Stir in the spinach and cook until warmed through, 1-2 mins.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper. Stir through a knob of butter.
Mix in the Meatballs
4
  • When the potatoes and meatballs have been cooking for 15 mins, remove the meatballs from the oven (leaving the potatoes to cook).
  • Add the meatballs to an oven dish.
  • Stir in the simmered spinach sauce.
  • Drain then roughly tear the mozzarella and spread it on top.
Melt the Mozzarella
5
  • Place the oven dish in the oven below the potatoes.
  • Bake everything until the mozzarella has melted and the potatoes are tender, 10-15 mins. IMPORTANT: Mince is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
Finish and Serve
6
  • Divide the mozzarella meatballs between plates.
  • Serve with the crispy potatoes alongside.
