  • Hi Snjezana.The 2 cups of milk I use for soaking the slices of breads and the milk what left I pour into mince.The mince will be very soft after cooking.I never throw the milk away.Good luck.Happy Easter.

  • I don’t think I’ve ever seen somebody use a muffin tray to cook meatballs, it’s ingenious! ^_^

    • Hello Nell.I used the muffin tray,because I did not want fried them in oil. And come perfect.But is up to you which way you do it.Tummy doesn’t know which shape was it anyway.

      • I think that’s a great idea. ^_^ I’ll have to give it a go, because I know so many people that don’t like their food oil-fried either. ^_^
