Method for the meatballs:
1. Preheat the oven.
2. In a bowl, put the minced meat and sausage meat [make sure you remove the sausage meat from its ‘skin’ first]
3. Add the dry spices and Worcestershire sauce and mix well.
4. Add the breadcrumbs then mix again.
5. Lastly add the egg and mix well until evenly distributed.
6. Using a tablespoon, take one large scoop at a time of the minced meat mixture and roll into balls then arrange them on a baking tray lined with aluminium foil.
7. Bake at 180°c for 35 minutes.
Method for the Hawaiian glaze:
1. In a small saucepan put all the ingredients to cook on medium heat except the cup of water, sesame seeds and corn flour.
2. Bring it to a boil for around 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
3. In the cup of water mix the corn flour well and pour into the pan, stir.
4. A minute before you are done cooking the glaze add the lightly toasted sesame seeds, stir in well then remove from the cooker.
5. Serve with your preferred choice of vegetable rice.
