These Mini Thai Lunchbox Meatballs are super-fast to make and my kids love having them in their lunchbox.

They’re a staple for me because I can make a big batch in 10 minutes while the kids eat their breakfast. The secret? Use a mini-muffin tin to shape them instead of hand-rolling the meatballs … and suddenly this becomes a fast recipe.

Today we made these gorgeous Thai flavoured meatballs – but you can also make your favourite meatball recipe this way.

While they were in the oven for 10 minutes – the kids and I went out to pick some beautiful autumn leaves from our baby liquid-amber tree. It looked so beautiful here in the morning sunshine.

The kids went off to school calm and happy – chuffed with their lunchboxes and packing a few special autumn leaves for their kindy nature tables.
