2 ways to cook

  1. Skillet
    • Brush a non-stick grill pan or skillet with olive oil and place over medium heat
    • When heated, add the patties or meatballs
    • Let them cook for about 5-6 minutes on each side, until they are golden brown
  2. Oven
    • Preheat the oven to 200°C / 400°F
    • Brush a parchment paper with olive oil and place on a baking tray
    • Add the patties or meatballs and place the tray in the oven
    • Let them bake for about 15-17 minutes, until they are golden brown
    • Then, flip them on the other side, using a turner spatula or tongs and let them bake for 5-7 more minutes


Tip: bake / cook larger quantities and freeze them. They will be ok for 2-3 months. Simply defrost them when you want to consume them
