Mince patties with that extra little something…

February 5, 2009

I have to confess, these are of Will’s creation, not mine, but they got my parents’ seal of approval and they were never fans of mince patties before these came along. They’ve got cheese and egg and curry powder to make them a real flavour bonanza, and even as a non-red-meat eater I have to say, I was tempted. Best of all, there’s not really any extra effort involved (as compared to your average patties), and you won’t have to rush anywhere for the ingredients.

birthdaydinner1Will’s mince patties

a guide

a man-fist-sized bit of mince (lamb or beef, just ensure it’s not too fatty)
grated cheese (just enough to speckle your mince with pale yellow flecks)
an egg
several good pinches curry powder
about 1/4 c breadcrumbs (wholemeal if you want some fibre)
half an onion, finely chopped
salt n pepper
cooking oil

Mix up mince, onion, cheese, curry powder, salt n pepper, until combined. Stir in the egg until well combined, then stir in the breadcrumbs until you get a moist but soft-dough-like mixture. Roll up golf ball sized chunks into balls, flatten a bit, and cook on a lightly oiled frying pan (or bbq) on medium heat, until cooked both sides to your liking. Serve up with some spring onion.

    I would roll them in flour before popping them in tha pan. That tends to give them a nice brown colour.
    mmmm, I am hungry, again.
