  1. If using wooden skewers, soak in water for 30 mins first. Preheat the grill to medium-high. Put the beef mince in a large bowl and mix in all the other meatball ingredients, then season.
  2. Shape the meatball mixture into 12 balls (each about 80g) and thread each onto a skewer. Place on a foil-lined baking tray and grill for 15-20 mins, turning a few times, until golden and cooked through.
  3. Mix together the ketchup and Buffalo sauce and serve drizzled over the skewers or on the side for dipping.
