Chorizo Style Meatballs

This is a take on the Spanish chorizo, the sweet smokey paprika spices and colours the pork mince and is a sizzling success served midweek in summer or winter. Make little meatballs and add them to a tomato based pasta, a twist on the usual spaghetti and meatballs or serve them as a pattie in a burger or a wrap with a chopped salad and yogurt sauce.

They are very easy to make and add a little variety when you want to use a packet of mince midweek.

Ideally if you could ask your butcher to coarsely mince pork (neck of pork is a good cut) otherwise a packet from the supermarket will work too.
