Italian Meatballs with Spelt Focaccia

Collabs, Cooking

Wahey it’s our first post!  And this is Amy by the way!

So it was one of those nights where Jonny fancied some hand food (food you eat with your hands…) and I wanted to try a spelt focaccia, so this meal happened.

I began by preparing the focaccia.  I used my sourdough starter to leaven the bread and 100% wholegrain spelt flour.  Here’s the bread in its final proof with fresh rosemary, olive oil, and black pepper.  I added salt before baking.


Jonny prepared the mix for the meatballs.  All kinds of amazingness in this bowl: pork and beef, Italian style, packed with herbs, mozzarella and sweet peppers.



We paired the meatballs with a cold tomato based sauce and mozzarella, dipped the spelt focaccia in balso & oil… tada a yummy dinner!

The tomato sauce was simply grated tomatoes, garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper, delicious and light.


We also built meatball sandwiches like you do with dairy lee lunchables at school… SO good!
