Bramley Apple Meatballs with Creamy Mash and Bramley and Cranberry Sauce

Craving some easy comfort food? Our Bramley Apple Meatballs have got you covered. In fact, Bramleys help to tenderise and break down tougher cuts of meat, thanks to their malic acid content (a naturally occurring fruit acid that helps to give Bramleys their signature tart taste). Serve with smooth, creamy mash and Bramley and cranberry sauce to get your taste buds tingling. Try our top meal prep tip and double up on meatball quantities, keeping some pre-cooked in the freezer to eat at a later date. Simply thaw throughout the day and reheat in the evening for a fuss free, easy dinner.
