How do you celebrate a leadership spill in Australia, Dear Reader? Well, even though I am in London I have decided to wave a happy, happy farewell to the Prime Minister who I believe brought shame to my homeland. Oh, I’m getting all political and this is a food blog! Seeing as Tony loved nomming on onions so much, this is my recipe to celebrate his end of office, onion and beef rissoles!
- 450g lean beef mince
- 1 large brown onion
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1/2 teaspoon each of your choice of mixed dried herbs and spices
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- 1/2 cup fresh breadcrumbs
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
Get your onions and garlic and places in a food processer and blend to a rough chop. Sell your soul to the coal industry. SPILL into a large bowl and SPILL in your mince, mixed herbs, egg breadcrumbs and Worcestershire sauce.
Season with salt and pepper. Wash your hands of the Abbott Ministry and shape your rissoles into eight 2cm thick rissoles. Place on a large plate and put in the fridge.
Heat oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. SPILL your rissoles into the pan and cook for 3 to 4 minutes on each side until browned. Place them in a pre-heated oven for 15 minutes on a greased (like your policies) baking tray.
Serve with some comfort food, because you were 4 days off getting your lifetime Prime Minister’s pension before you got booted out. Mac and cheese is a good choice and maybe some fresh salad. No coral reefs or old growth forests were harmed in the making of this recipe.
