Preparation: 20 minutes

Serves: 4


500g fresh turkey mince
2 tbsp capers, rinsed, finely chopped
1 tbsp lemon rind, finely grated
2 tbsp lemon juice
1/3 cup basil leaves, finely chopped
2 tbsp olive oil
800g Sebago potatoes, peeled, coarsely grated

  • Combine turkey mince, capers, lemon rind, lemon juice and basil leaves in a large bowl.
  • Roll heaped tablespoons of mince mixture into balls and place onto a large plate. Continue to roll remaining mince mixture.
  • Place grated potatoes into a colander. Using your hands, squeeze as much liquid as possible from potatoes. Put potatoes into a large bowl. Add flour and egg. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Heat oil in a small saucepan over a medium heat. Add onion and cook for 3-4 minutes or until soft. Add tomatoes, chilli, Worcestershire sauce and Tabasco sauce.

  • Transfer meatballs to a large plate. Cover to keep warm.
  • Add 1 tablespoon of oil to a hotplate. Spoon 2 tablespoons of potato mixture onto hotplate, forming flat patties and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side or until crisp and golden.
