- Combine the 2 types of ground meat and herbs. Mix well and set aside.
- Preheat the oven to 200 * C (390*F) Fan.
- Finely chop the onions. Sauté them in a pan with some olive oil over medium to low heat. This should take about 10 minutes, since we want the onions to be well cooked. Add the garlic 3 minutes before the onions are done. When ready, set aside to cool.
- Combine all of the ingredients for the meatballs in a large bowl and mix with your hands. Roll the mixture into 3-4 cm balls. Before putting meatballs into 2 large baking pans, line with parchment paper.
