Rissoles (Italian Style)

An old Aussie fav, the rissole, has been given a bit of a bashing. This updated version is one my entire family loved. It was inspired by a recipe seen in an Australian food mag but adapted to my families tastes.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 750 g beef mince
  • 34 cup fresh breadcrumb (made from day-old bread)
  • 150 g roasted capsicums, thinly sliced (chargrilled peppers)
  • 14 cup olive, pitted and thinly sliced (optional)
  • 14 cup fresh basil, finely shredded
  • 1 tablespoon mixed Italian herbs
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 egg, lightly whisked
  • 12 red onion, finely chopped
  • salt & freshly ground black pepper


  1. Combine the beef mince, breadcrumbs, capsicum, olives, basil, herbs, garlic, egg and onion in a large bowl.
  2. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Divide the mince mixture into 8 equal portions and shape into patties.
  4. Preheat a barbecue plate or large non-stick frying pan over medium heat.
  5. Add the patties and cook for 5 minutes each side or until brown and cooked through.

3 out of 4 liked these a lot! The PICKY ONE wouldn't even try. I left out the olives as we don't care for them but otherwise follwed the recipe for a very yummy supper!

Served along side Recipe #134360 and a green salad Mmmm, total comfort food!! I made as directed ommiting the olives and roasting about 3 medium capsicum to arrive at the 150g. Thanks so much for sharing this has brought the humble rissole to another level!!
