Looking for an easy budget family dinner? Learn how to make Rissoles here!
Growing up the good old Rissole with veggies (ALWAYS veggies) was a regular on our dinner table. I must admit it wasn’t my favourite meal, but it certainly wasn’t my most disliked. I’d never made Rissoles before having my boys, but it’s now become one of our favourite meals!
All of my boys LOVE eating Rissoles and can easily smash back two or three of them each in just one sitting. Instead of serving them with vegetables like the old days, we usually enjoy them with a basic salad of tomato, grated carrot and cheese, beetroot and cucumber – and in burgers of course!
This is a really easy recipe to adapt. You could add extra vegetables such as sweet potato or zucchini (both taste delicious). The below recipe makes around 10 Rissoles (depending on the size you make them) and you can freeze any leftovers – they make a great easy meal!
How to Make Rissoles:
