I'm really pleased to welcome Cochranegirl on the follower bar and Chris on bloglovin.
Today has been a "leftover" day.
We had roast lamb yesterday. I always cook extra vegetables, but this time there was a little lamb left over too. I put some slices in the freezer with the leftover gravy to have another day with vegetables. The rest I pared off the bones. This yielded 8 ounces of meat. I minced this with an onion, a carrot , a thin slice of squash, some mushrooms and a clove of garlic. I then cleaned the mincer out with a crust of bread and added this, a spoonful of chutney, some chopped parsley and half an egg to the mix. I rolled the mix in seasoned flour and voila! Rissoles.
I served these up with bubble and squeak - leftover potatoes and cabbage from yesterday and a couple of scallions from the bunch my friend gave me - Marmande tomatoes from the greenhouse and some of the mushrooms picked by my daughter and granddaughter
In case you think that this frugal( tight?) woman is going to waste half an egg. I haven't. I have mixed this with some milk and will use it tomorrow when I make some fish cougons.
We have just got back from a talk about William Jessop, Engineer. at our Canal Society and very interesting it was too.
Hot milk and to bed methinks
Leftovers are rare in this house; I'm a pig. I love Bubble and Squeak; my problem is I often have leftover Bubble, but no Squeak.ReplyDelete
Isn't squeakless bubble fried potato? I often cook more on purpose. I then serve directly onto D's plate or he just keeps helping himself from the serving dish, scuppering my leftover plansDelete
We love rissoles, good thrifty comfort food. I sometimes make bubble and squeak type rissoles with any left over veg and mash, good with sausages :-)ReplyDelete
So I am not the only one that makes them! Yes bubble is good with sausage and brown sauce.Delete
My mother used tp make rissoles and they were delicious. I always think that mince made from pre-roasted meat tastes so superior. That plate looks very appetising.ReplyDelete
An extra dimension when using roasted meat. I know people who cook mince in their slow cooker without browning it first. They too can't appreciate that extra flavour. The plate in the pic is D's (i'm not a fan on mushrooms as a veg)Delete
And Rissoles to You Too!ReplyDelete
( they do look good)
I bet my daughter that you would get it and respond!Delete
Glad C. is on the mend
I love fried leftovers. I sometimes cook loads more so we can have it or I can make fishcakes with the left over mash potato. I do the same with jacket potato, sliced up and fried they're amazing.ReplyDelete
you're meal looks like a proper good tea!
yum! This is my first visit here and I have been reading and reading, lol, its so nice to meet you., best wishes from canada,ReplyDelete
