Entered for ZWT 5 - round 1. In Portugal, rissoles are known as rissóis and are usually filled with cod, minced meat, shrimp or (less frequently) chicken or a combination of cheese and ham. The Australian rissole is generally made from minced meat without a pastry covering, but sometimes with breadcrumbs.Mostly cooked on a BBQ all year round. The New Zealand rissole is much the same as the Australian rissole but may contain diced yellow onion and cooked on a BBQ as a healthier option during summer

The wine mushroom sauce is to die for. So yummy!!! The patties were good with the carrots but were a little bland for our taste. I used dry thyme instead of fresh. Thanks Deantini :) Made for Holiday tag game
Tasty vegie pack rissoles with a nice mushroom sauce. The cooking time for the rissoles was perfect, though I did scale if back for 3 serves (6 rissoles) and they were very filling). I did need to add an extra 1/4 cup of liquid to the mushroom sauce or it would have been too thick though we prefer a slightly runny sauce, would just use about 1/2 as much flour next time. Make sure you have buttered bread to soak it up or mashed potatoe like we did. Thank you Deantini, made for Photo Tage Game. UPDATE - There was quite a bit of the mushroom sauce left but it heated up well and the DM and I enjoyed on some buttered toast for breakfast.
