Baked Potato Meatballs Recipe

Baked Potato Meatballs Recipe


  • 500 grams of ground beef
  • 1 onion
  • 1 tablespoon of breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg
  • Salt, black pepper, red pepper flakes
  • Cumin, thyme (adjust the spices according to your taste)
  • 4-5 medium-sized potatoes

For the sauce:

  • 1 tablespoon of butter
  • 2 tablespoons of pepper and tomato paste
  • Some hot water

For the topping:

  • A few tomatoes
  • A few peppers (hot or sweet)


  1. Grate the onion and squeeze out the excess water. Add breadcrumbs and beaten egg, then mix well.
  2. Add ground beef and spices, then knead thoroughly. Let it rest.
  3. Peel the potatoes and slice them into rounds.
  4. Take walnut-sized portions from the meat mixture and shape them into ovals. Slice the onions into rings and place them on a baking tray.
  5. Arrange the potato slices on top of the onions and add the meatballs. Place quartered tomatoes and sliced peppers in between.
  6. Melt the butter for the sauce. Add the pepper and tomato paste and sauté well. Pour in some hot water and bring it to a boil. Pour the sauce over the meatballs.
  7. Wet a parchment paper and cover the tray. Bake in a preheated oven at 200 degrees Celsius.
  8. Remove the cover and lightly brown the dish when the potatoes are tender.
  9. Serve hot and enjoy. A key tip is to knead the meat mixture thoroughly for a long time to ensure it sticks together and shape it before letting it rest in the refrigerator for a few hours.

Note: You can adjust the sauce and cooking time according to your preference.
