Try these tasty rissoles for weeknight dinners

Tasty rissoles recipe

My dad used to make a seriously tasty rissole, so I grew up munching into yummy, flavourful beef dinners.  These days, I’ve taken over this last bastion of cheap eats and made it tastier, yummier and veggie smuggling. These are my amazingly tasty rissoles!

I discussed this tasty rissole recipe with my daughter on the way home from dancing and she said, “I might eat them. I’ll try them.” “Might” and “try” are wins in my book. Anything we can get the kids to have go of is a win, right? Well, she tried them and she didn’t just “might” like them, instead she declared them to be really yummy.

Even my 5-year-old, who can be quite the fusspot loves them, so they are going to be on regular rotation on our dinner menu.

Not only does adding zucchini and cheese into the mix makes these tasty rissoles more nutritious, it also helps with binding. And more veggies means you can make more too.  So a super cheap meal becomes even cheaper.

If you are using fresh mince you can freeze these raw, so you have another meal of tasty rissoles or even burgers (just make each patty a bit bigger, squash flat and watch your cooking time). Either way, you need to be sure when working with mince that they are cooked through. I’ve used beef mince for this recipe, but you can make tasty rissoles using pork, chicken or turkey mince too.

A tip for forming rissoles: it will make them tons easier if you keep your hands wet.  The meat mix sticks to your hands far less, making it easier to roll and shape your patties and put them onto the baking tray.

      Rissoles are just flat meatballs, Diane. But not as big as burgers!! I’m in Australia. x
