Meaty Monster Balls

I've been rather busy this week and didn't have time to plan anything. Cue a Thursday evening staring at my cupboards wondering what to do. Staring at cupboards can produce interesting results. Meatballs and Monster Munch, you say?

(serves 4)
12 meatballs
150g plain flour
75g butter
3 eggs
tomato pureé
assorted herbs and spices
3 bags of pickled onion flavour Monster Munch


# Heat some oil in a pan and cook your meatballs. Get 'em good and crispy.

# While the meatballs are cooking through, whisk together butter, flour, and eggs into a batter.

# To the batter, add a couple of tablespoons of tomato pureé and whatever herbs and spices you find delicious. I've gone for cayenne pepper, ground coriander, nutmeg, paprika, and basil.

# Crush up your three bags of Monster Munch. Try not to be too sad about it. Add it to the mix.

# Remove meatballs from the pan, and pour a good pool of oil in the pan to heat up. Put a little flour in a bowl and coat the meatballs. Then coat the meatballs in batter.

# Shallow fry the meatballs three at a time. Optional, but for really tasty balls, do a second coating of batter.

# Skewer three meatballs together and serve. A yoghurt or tomato-based dip is also an excellent idea. These are really not as disgusting as they sound.
