This delicious recipe came from my dad's aunt, Norma Albers from Kiester, MN. Everyone loves it; even the picky little ones! It is great for a large group, and we are planning on making this for my brother's high school graduation open house in June. I hope you enjoy it!
You might be fooled into thinking you are eating plain meatballs until you cut them and see a creamy cheese and bacon filling. Make these for everyday and company meals as well as potlucks. Use them to top off spaghetti and fettuccine and sometimes even shape them into patties. Good with garden fresh chives and parsley sprinkled into the beef. Mozzarella and Swiss cheese are good substitutes for the cheddar. Try ground turkey instead of beef.
Tired of mashed, baked and fried potatoes? Well I was. This recipe came to me through experimentation. I have taken this side dish to pot-lucks, various outings, and picnics and I am always asked for the recipe. Excellent side dish and VERY EASY to make. Hope you enjoy it too!
Very easy, very little prep. I use to buy a product made by Lipton, which came in a bottle and you poured it over your diced potatoes and baked/grilled the dish. They have since discontinued the product, so I have found this to be the next best thing.
These freeze really well and I remember as a teenager coming home from late shift at work and heating these up as a late night snack. We always used Maggi onion soup mix. I haven't allowed for extra cheese for sprinkling on top in ingredient list. You can take the crusts off the bread if you wish, we never did.
A friend gave me this recipe years ago. I'm not sure where it orginally came from.
The Australian rissole is generally made from minced meat and pan fried, without a pastry covering, but sometimes with breadcrumbs.
This recipe is suitable to freeze and for OAMC. Thanks to Tish I have added the directions.
