Ben’s veggie ‘forcemeat’ balls

-

Mum has always served these with Christmas dinner, and her mother did the same. It’s a tradition my siblings and I are keen on, but we don’t always spend Christmas Day together, so I work them into other occasions over the festive period. Forcemeat balls are traditiona­lly made with ground or puréed meats (such as beef, veal or pork) and fat. My family version uses vegetarian suet and breadcrumb­s instead, so they’re similar to stuffing balls. They’re irresistib­ly crunchy and absorb so much flavour. Ben Curtis, group creative director
