Mini Meatball Cannon Wraps

I usually like to make my own meatballs, but sometimes I need a quick solution for tea. I was given £3 vouchers for Richmond mini meatballs to try them and come up with a recipe. (A pack for 20 costs £2.) I am afraid that I am not the kind of mum that spends ages creating happy faces for her children to tuck into. I am no Annabel Karmel and I fear that if I started then every mealtime I would be forced into dreaming up a more creative dinner plate just to get my kids to eat some carrots! If I am using a convenience product, it is because I need something that is quick. I therefore tend to try and describe the food in a more exciting way instead - so here are my "Mini Meatball Cannon Wraps"

The mini meatballs take just 8 minutes to oven cook, so that is how long this meal took. Pop the mini meatballs in the oven and grate some cheese. I bought some mini wraps and heated them in the microwave for a few seconds. Then I added ketchup and grated cheese.

I then added the meatballs and rolled up the wraps, and served up the mini meatball cannons to the boys. Small boys have great imaginations, luckily they ate their cannons rather than shoot them! Baby man found the meatballs easy to eat as they were soft difficult, and meat is usually difficult for him to eat.

I like the idea of using wraps and I reckon giving kids the ability to build their own wrap would make them more likely to eat up, so may well give it a try. Like you, I tend to prefer to make my own meatballs, but I thought these were quite good if you're in a hurry.

Where did you buy them from? That's a good idea - and could add some salad for my husband too :O)
