Puff Pastry Meatballs

Last winter I visited my parents and had some great meatballs made by mommy, though these meatballs were with a twist. Not like the typical ones you find at IKEA, but hey, meatballs in all variations works just fine by me.
Surrounded by a interesting pattern off puff pastry and with a mouth-watering inside, they are the perfect appetiser at any gathering.
I served mine with a crispy salad, balsamic vinegar and slices of sheep cheese.
