Meat patties

DS2 asked for hamburger but I didn't have time to bake any bread. Went through some recipe books and got this inspiration, meat pattie with mashed potatoes. Using a similar Cheese & Herb Burger recipe, I made them into meat balls instead. I didn't quite follow the recipe but use it as a guide.

I happened to have some Roman Lettuce in the fridge, added some Japanese cucumber, tomatoes and apples and we had salad (Italian Dressing) to go along with the meat balls.

250g beef mince
1 egg, light beaten
1 small onion, finely chopped
1/4 cup dried breadcrumbs
2 tsp low-salt soy sauce
2 tsp low-salt tomato paste
2 tsp finely chopped coriander
2 tsp finely chopped chives
30g low-fat cheese, grated
1/2 cup dried breadcrumbs, extra


  1. Combine mince, egg, onion, breadcrumbs, flavourings, herbs and cheese in medium mixing bowl. Using your hand, mix well. Divide mixture into eight equal portions.
  2. Roll mince portions in extra breadcrumbs. Press mixture into egg rings to give a patty shape.
  3. Heat medium non-stick frying pan. Brush pan with a little oil if necessary, to prevent burgers from sticking. Cook burgers over high heat 2 - 3 mins each side. Remove from pan, drain on absorbent paper.
