Mini Turkey Meatloaf rissoles

Makes 5 large balls

This is a really easy recipe, and mostly just a guide line as opposed to 'gospel'. This is because there is a lot of room for adaptation, for example different types of vegetables such as courgettes or fresh herbs to your liking. You could also substitute the turkey mince for chicken; it is really up to you. In this recipe there is no use of bread, therefore making it high in protein and low in carbs, and the oats help hold the mixture together. 

I enjoy these mini meatloaf/rissoles with salad, or some vegetables on the side as a healthy dinner option

  • 500g lean turkey mince
  • 1 bunch of coriander (or other fresh herb to taste)
  • 3 table spoons oats
  • 1 onion
  • 1 carrot (or courgette)
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1 pepper
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Note: if you have an egg add it to the mixture 
  • Pre-heat oven to 120C
  • Finely chop the coriander, pepper and onion
  • Grate the carrot, and crush the garlic (if you have no garlic crusher, chop it finely)
  • Combine the mince, the egg (if you have it), the oats and all the chopped up ingredients into a large mixing ball and get in there with your hands combine everything together. It is important to really get the ingredients combine properly, and don't forget the salt and pepper
    • Once all combined and mixed together, make large balls with your hands and place on an oven tray lined with grease paper (this is where the 'Meatloaf' part of the title comes in, as instead of frying, the rissoles are cooked in the oven)
    • Place in the oven on the middle shelf for approximately 20mins
    • There should be no pink in the middle once cooked. 
    Note: be careful not to over cook as they could get dry. The smaller the balls the quicker they will cook

    I hope you enjoy this recipe! Please let me know how you go :)
