Does anyone have a recipie for the good old British rissole?

I loved these things when I was growing up in the UK, they were on every chip shop menu but when I was back this year they were gone!

Basic Rissoles

225 - 350g (8 - 12 oz) cooked minced beef (beef rissoles) or chicken (chicken rissoles) or fish (fish rissoles)
1/2 small onion, skinned and grated
450g (1 lb) potatoes, boiled and mashed
1 tbsp (15 ml) sweet pickle or table sauce
salt and pepper

beaten egg
dry breadcrumbs for coating

shallow fat for frying


1) Mix the meat, onion and potatoes and add the pickle or sauce and a generous amount of seasoning. Blend everything together well.

2) Divide into equally sized meatballs and flatten out into patties about 1/2 inch thick.

3) Dip into egg, coat with breadcrumbs, fry until golden.

Wow, that sounds good! Reminds me a bit of scotch eggs, which I really enjoyed when I lived in England eons ago - do you guys still have those? Loved them.

Thumbs up Rissoles

Thank you, my rissoles were made with fish and I'm sure that this will work. The ones I bought were always round like a ball and deep fried so I'm not sure about making them like hamburgers ... but I'm going to try doing that with the beef ones.
One other question ... what's "table sauce"?

Thanks again for posting this ...

I haven't a clue! Maybe one of our UK members will see this and can answer that question in North American terms.
