Lovely rissole recipe which would equally work for burgers or meatballs that could then be served with pasta.

As with all mince recipes, get the leanest, best mince possible. Lamb mince would be a wonderful substitute for beef.

~200g beef mince
~1/4 large brown onion, finely diced (or grated)
~1 large clove garlic, finely diced
~1/4 cup flat leaved Italian parsley, chopped
~50-80g reduced fat feta cheese, crumbled
~8-10 kalamata olives, pitted and sliced
~1/2 cup breadcrumbs
~1 egg

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix to combine. Form mixture into large round balls and flatten to form rissoles. Fry or barbecue rissoles over medium-high heat for ~3-5 minutes on each size, depending on the size.

Serve immediately. I served these with a mixed salad (as pictured). Makes approximately 4-5 rissoles. Calories per rissole – approximately 180.
