Hen rissoles

Aussies love a very good beef rissole. It’s proper up there with different nostalgic Australian consolation meals like curried sausages, bangers and mash, and a very good old school roast with all of the trimmings.

In case you’re questioning what rissoles are, in Australia (and New Zealand) they’re small meat patties which can be normally pan-fried. And whereas we Aussies prefer to consider they’re solely ours (proper!?) it seems that truly there are totally different types of rissoles all around the globe made with different meats, fish/seafood and greens.

The basic Aussie model is made with beef mince, usually combined with grated greens, and flavoured with savoury seasonings comparable to Worcestershire sauce.

Right now although I’m doing a spin on the basic utilizing rooster. I’ve additionally doubled down on the non-traditional method by including cheese for a lot wanted juiciness (as a result of rooster mince = lean meat) in addition to flavour.

However you’re going to like them. Have a look at these golden beauties!

What you want for Hen Rissoles

Right here’s what it’s good to make these tacky rooster rissoles:

Ingredients for Chicken rissoles (chicken patties)
  • Hen mince (floor rooster) – This recipe is created with rooster mince however turkey or pork mince would make nice direct substitutes with no alteration to the recipe. For beef and lamb, it’s higher to make use of the basic Beef Rissoles recipe which has seasonings suited to pink meats.

    TIP: Hen mince bought in packets from supermarkets will be fairly moist and gentle. Pour off and discard any liquid pooled within the packet earlier than utilizing. If you’re struggling to type patties as a result of your combination is just too moist, add extra breadcrumbs to soak up the surplus moisture. However actually attempt to keep away from/minimise this because the drier the combination will get, the much less juicy your rissoles!

  • Panko breadcrumbs – Breadcrumbs are crucial to soak up among the moisture so you’ll be able to type patties. I like to make use of Panko breadcrumbs as a result of it makes the within of the rissoles softer than utilizing the fantastic common breadcrumbs.

    Panko is a Japanese breadcrumb favoured for the extra-crispy coating it provides crumbed meals (crumbed tenders, schnitzel, Kiev). Discover it within the Asian aisle of most massive supermarkets. Substitute with 2/3 cup common breadcrumbs if you happen to can’t discover panko.

  • Cheese (shredded) – Provides flavour and juiciness to the within of the rissoles. Hen mince may be very lean, so cheese actually makes a distinction to the tasty-factor. Decide a well-flavoured cheese that’s appropriate for each shredding and melting. Colby, cheddar/tasty, Monterey Jack, gouda, and provolone are all good selections.

  • Carrot and zucchini – To bulk out the patties in addition to including some goodness to our weight-reduction plan. Double up on one or the opposite if you’d like extra veg, or simply desire one veg.
    Alternate options: corn, thawed peas or small diced frozen greens, or finely chopped cooked, cooled broccoli. You don’t need to use something that wants cooking (like uncooked grated candy potato) as a result of the rooster mince will overcook earlier than the vegetable cooks via.

  • Egg – For binding. Only one. Any extra and it’ll noticeably dry out the filling.

  • Parsley – Non-compulsory, for pretty little flecks of color.

I have to share extra recipes which can be so simple I solely want 6 easy step photographs like beneath! Simply what I wanted after Friday’s Vegetable Dumplings, which totalled a whopping 30 course of pictures!!! (But it surely’s nonetheless a very easy recipe, I swear 😂)

  1. Grate the zucchini and carrot utilizing a regular field grater,

  2. Combine all of the rissole substances collectively in a bowl utilizing a wood spoon.

Earlier than you ask, I did strive baking them too. It really works however I discovered which you could’t get the identical quantity of enticing darkish color on the floor with out overcooking the within. They’re nonetheless tasty, and I’d do it if comfort was a precedence (so I’ve included instructions within the notes), however pan-frying actually is healthier for these rissoles.

If baking comfort is what you’re after, strive these Baked Hen Broccoli Patties. The addition of broccoli protects the rooster mince from drying out within the oven so you’ll be able to bake it for a bit longer and thus get extra good color on it.

Oh and don’t fear. These have cheese in them too. ☺️ – Nagi x

Recipe video above. The rooster model of the beloved Aussie beef rissoles! You may love the oozy little pockets of cheese.Makes 14 to 16 rissoles. Serves 4 to five as a meal, or one Dozer.


  • Pre-heat oven to 100°C/210°F (all oven varieties), to maintain cooked rissoles heat. Place a rack over a tray.

  • Rissole combination: Combine all substances collectively in a bowl utilizing a wood spoon.

  • Kind patties: Moist your fingers (stops the combination type sticking). Measure out simply shy of 1/4 cup and form right into a 6 cm large x 1.5cm thick pattie (2.4″ x 0.6″ thick). See Notice 1 in case your combination is just too unfastened.

  • Prepare dinner: Warmth 1 tablespoon oil in a big non-stick pan over medium excessive warmth. Prepare dinner 5 – 6 rissoles on the time, 3 to 4 minutes on either side, till fantastically golden (as pictured). (Notice 5 for baking)

  • Hold heat: Switch to the rack on the tray and hold heat within the oven. Add extra oil as wanted and prepare dinner remaining rissoles.

  • Serve right away with ketchup for dipping!

Recipe Notes:

1. Hen mince will be fairly watery. If there’s liquid pooled within the packet, drain and discard first. Don’t let it get into the meat combination else it could be too unfastened. In case your combination actually is sloppy (older rooster mince will be actually moist), add further panko. Nevertheless actually attempt to minimise the panko, as a result of the extra extra panko you utilize, the much less juicy your rissoles will probably be.
2. Grating on a shallow angle – The purpose is to grate brief somewhat than lengthy strands. To do that, maintain the carrot/zucchini perpendicular to the field grater as you grate. It will make the shortest strands. If you happen to maintain them on a steep angle, you’ll get lengthy strands which isn’t very best right here.
Be at liberty to double up on both carrot or zucchini if you’d like extra greens.
3. Cheese – Most cheeses will truly work (as a result of, cheese!) However the very best cheese has flavour with out being overpowering, will be shredded, and melts into tacky strings. Colby, cheddar/tasty, Monterey Jack, provolone and gouda are my picks.
4. Panko breadcrumbs are a Japanese breadcrumb favoured for the extra-crispy coating it provides crumbed meals, and makes the within of issues like rissoles softer in comparison with utilizing common breadcrumbs. Discover it within the Asian aisle of most massive supermarkets. Substitute with 2/3 cup common breadcrumbs if you happen to can’t discover it.
5. Baking – Pan frying actually is the easiest way to prepare dinner these for greatest outcomes. Baking isn’t nearly as good however they’re nonetheless tasty (because of the cheese!). Spray the patties effectively with olive oil spray and place on 2 massive lined trays. Bake at 220°C/430°F for 15 to 18 minutes, flipping midway. They are going to be a lighter color than pictured. The rooster will overcook and dry out if you happen to bake them for too lengthy.
6. Storage – Retains for 3 days within the fridge. Freezes fantastic however not very best, I feel you’ll lose juiciness inside (just because rooster is lean).
7. Vitamin per rissole.
