• 400g lean beef mince
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 cups of breadcrumbs, fresh or dried
  • 2 onions, finely diced or grated
  • 2 medium carrots, peeled and grated
  • 1 teaspoon mixed herbs (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 4 wholegrain or wholemeal bread rolls
  • Lettuce
  • Tomatoes
  • Beetroot, canned


Approx 25-30 min. Serves 4

  1. Place mince, eggs, breadcrumbs, onion, carrot and herbs into a large bowl and mix well using hands.
  2. Split the beef mixture into portions. Roll into balls and squash flat to make rissoles.
  3. Heat oil in a large pan and add rissoles. Cook for approximately 5 minutes on each side, until browned and cooked through.
  4. Cut bread rolls in half, top with rissole and salad vegetables and serve.

Cooking Hints

  1. Instead of lean beef mince, try chicken, turkey or kangaroo mince.
  2. For an alternative to hamburgers, serve rissoles with baked potato wedges and vegetables.

Family Eating Tip

Offer children a smaller meal size than adults, e.g. for younger children, make smaller sized rissoles.
