Turkey balls with melted cheese centres.

Serves 4
  • 1 slice stale bread, torn into chunks 
  • 250g turkey mince 
  • 2 green onions (shallots), finely chopped 
  • 1/8 cup chopped coriander 
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten (separate) 
  • 2 tbsp olive oil 
  • 75 grams cheddar, cut into cubes
  • 100g panko breadcrumbs
  • couscous, to serve 

Place bread in a small bowl and cover with water. Set aside to soak for 5 minutes, then drain and squeeze dry. Place in a large bowl with the turkey mince, chopped green onion, coriander and 1 egg. Mix thoroughly and season.

Using wet hands, take about 1/4 cup of the mixture and form into a bowl shape. Put a cheddar cube in the middle, then add another 1/4 cup of the mixture and shape into a ball. The mixture makes about 12 balls. 

Dip each ball into the other beaten egg, then coat in the breadcrumbs. Bake into a180 degree C pre-heated oven for about 30 minutes, until the breadcrumbs are browned and the turkey is done through. Serve with a side of couscous.
