I found this on Taste.com.au. This easy dinner is a great way to use up any sausages left over from a weekend barbecue or meatloaf or roast meats
- 1 kg desiree potato, roughly chopped
- 500 g sausages
- 150 g button mushrooms, sliced
- 80 g baby rocket, roughly chopped
- 1 1⁄4 cups cheddar cheese or 1 1⁄4 cups mozzarella cheese, grated
- 3 eggs, lightly beaten
- 1 cup fresh white breadcrumbs
- 40 g butter, chopped
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1⁄3 cup fruit chutney, to serve
- Place potatoes in a saucepan. Cover with water. Cook over medium heat for 10 minutes or until tender. Drain. Mash. Set aside to cool.
- Heat a frying pan over medium heat. Cook sausages for 6 to 8 minutes, turning, or until cooked through. Roughly chop.
- Combine potatoes, sausages, mushrooms, rocket, cheese, eggs, breadcrumbs, salt and pepper in a bowl. Stir until well combined.
- Line a baking tray with baking paper. Using 3/4 cup of mixture at a time, shape mixture into 12 patties. Place on baking tray. Cover. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 150°C Heat butter and oil in a non-stick frying pan over medium heat until sizzling. Cook patties, in batches, for 3 minutes each side or until golden. Keep cooked patties warm on baking tray in oven while cooking remaining patties. Serve patties warm with chutney.
- Notes & tips.
- To bake instead of pan-fry, place patties on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Spray well with olive oil cooking spray. Bake at 180°C for 25 minutes or until golden and cooked through.
- When melting butter, chop butter into 1cm pieces. Butter will melt evenly without burning.
- Leftover meatloaf or roast meats are also great in these patties. Chop the meat and use instead of the sausages.
A versatile, easy to prepare and tasty recipe but, although the mixture certainly divided well into 12 patties, I don't think it would provide enough for 12 people as a main course. Depends what was served with the patties, of course. I just had to add some minced garlic and some herbs, so I added one of my favourite combinations: rosemary, sage and thyme, added in step 3. On this occasion, I used some cold roast lamb and look forward to make these again using meatloaf. I loved the fact that I could fully prepare this in advance. Some patties I froze; the others I oven-baked. We enjoyed ours topped with KITTENCAL's Recipe #157176 and salad greens. YUM! Thanks for sharing this recipe. Made for Newest Zaar Tag.
