Love Yorkshire Meatballs? Well now you can get them at home

Since March 2014, David and Gareth Atkinson, the father and son duo behind specialty meatball concept, The Yorkshire Meatball Co., have been on a mission to lead the fight against average, tasteless meatballs through their Harrogate-based Meatball and Craft Beer Bar. Having established a growing reputation and a loyal following across Yorkshire for their premium take on the humble meatball, they are now set to bring their proper tasty Balls into your dining room, with the imminent launch of their high quality, premium-branded meatballs in supermarkets nationwide.

Inspired by their diners’ favourite Balls, David and Gareth, along with their local butcher, have put together a range of three eat-at-home meatball packs, and are launching them in a supermarket near you this autumn.

  • Fan of the classic meatball? Go for the Yorkshire Balls;Beef and Pork meatballs, roundly seasoned with shallot, garlic, herbs, salt and pepper – it’s proper hearty fare!
  • If you’re looking for something to tantalise those taste buds, try the Smokey Balls, Beef and Pork meatballs, seasoned with sweet smoked Spanish paprika. These Balls are jam-packed with flavour!
  • Fancy spicing it up? Dig in to the Hot Balls, Beef and Pork meatballs, nicely spiced with a warming kick of chilli pepper.

“After two great years operating our Meatball and Craft Beer Bar, we felt it was the right time to take the fight against average, tasteless meatballs nationwide, and bring some proper hearty Balls into homes further afield. This is ‘Proper Food, No Fuss’. Each Ball is rolled in Yorkshire, using only the freshest and tastiest Beef and Pork, locally-sourced from a butcher just outside of Harrogate. With each Ball also being gluten free, and egg and dairy free, they make for some good ol’ guilt-free chomping.”

The Yorkshire Meatball Co. product range will be available from ASDA from September, and Tesco from October 2016. A Morrisons launch is planned later that month.

With six Balls per pack (typically two portions), and  priced with an RRP of £3, the range offers a real alternative to premium burger and sausage products and are a great base for some innovative, exciting home-cooked meals!
