  • oil to fry
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • a little pepper
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic, pressed

Salt the zucchini, let it stand approx. 30 minutes in a sieve, then press out the water. Mix the zucchini with the minced meat, onion, garlic and breadcrumbs and season. Knead well by hand until the ingredients form a compact mass. Divide the meat mixture into 18 meatballs and press a well into each. Put a cube of Gorgonzola in each well and smooth the meat over it to form a meatball.

Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan and fry the balls in batches over medium heat for around 4 minutes each. Remove and drain on a baking tray lined with baking paper.

Bake approx. 10 minutes in the middle of an oven preheated to 160°C.
