Italian Meatballs

So it's been a little while since I posted on my recipe blog, but I thought it was time that some of my favourites were posted..
This is a true vegetarian recipe passed down from generations...blah blah ... But seriously it is a good one....

This will make around 15 medium size patties (they don't have to be balls)

1/2 cup rolled oats
11/4 cups tasty cheese
1 cup fresh breadcrumbs
1/2 cup raw macadamia nuts finely chopped
1 small onion finely chopped
3 eggs
2 Tbsp sour cream
1 clove garlic crushed
1/2 tsp salt
1 tin tomato soup ( I love Heinz)
1/2 cup milk

In a medium size bowl mix together the rolled oats and cheese.
Using a small food processor, process about two slices of bread to get your one cup of bread crumbs and add this to the first two ingredients. In the food processor add the onion, macadamia's, eggs, sour cream, garlic and salt. Or alternatively you can chop all ingredients finely (besides the eggs) and
mix all ingredients together.
In a fry pan on medium heat fry tablespoons of the mixture till golden brown on both sides. Place in a casserole dish and pour the tomato soup that is mixed with 1/2 cup milk over the patties, ensuring that they are all covered. Cook in a 170 -180c oven for approximately 40 minutes.
This is originally used with walnuts,which actually makes them a bit "meaty" in texture, but I love the Macadamia nuts.
