Rissoles are an economical everyday dish. When dining informally with a large group of people, you’ll often find Rissoles on the menu especially if it’s a barbeque.

Many Aussies buy uncooked ready-made Rissoles from their local butcher or at the grocery store. They usually come in a variety of flavours.

All you have to do then is cook them for a quick and easy meal.

Freeze It for Fast Meals

We make our own Rissoles and triple the recipe. Then freeze the extra cooked Rissoles for future meals. You can also freeze them raw and cook them later.

We like our Rissoles cooked crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Just make sure it’s thoroughly cooked inside.

Rissoles can be served with tomato sauce or gravy as a main dish. They can also be eaten cold as a snack. Don’t believe us? Leave a plate of them out and see how quick they disappear.
