Mini Rissoles

This is a meal I tried a while back and enjoyed. Yesterday I had a hankering for it and really had to make it. Only thing is, baby wants what I have so I had to come up with a baby friendly version. Mostly because these are quite chili (spicy) and I don't really think my daughter would have appreciated me handing her something that would burn her little mouth.
It is basically a small burger patty packed with yummy flavour (and chili) and served with a yogurt sauce. Yum! I normally have mine with a small salad. Goes great with a beet root salad or just a normal green salad. I served my daughters to her with a small tomato and mozzarella salad (her favourite) and a slice of bread. You can do the same for yours or serve it with potato,or whatever you want really :)

Serves two

Beef Rissoles
220g lean ground beef
1 clove garlic, crushed
2 teaspoons paprika
1 small onion, thinly sliced
Mixed herbs
Chili (optional, amount is up to you)
Olive oil
4 tablespoons Greek yogurt
Juice of half a lemon
2 or 3 springs of coriander, chopped
Salt and pepper, to taste

Combine beef, garlic, onion, paprika, mixed herbs and chili in a bowl. Shape the mince into patties.
Drizzle olive oil into a skillet and heat. Fry the patties until they are browned and cooked through.

For the yogurt sauce combine yogurt, lemon and coriander in a small bowl.

Top the patties with the yogurt sauce and serve.

Baby Rissoles
Baby version...
3 or 4 table spoons ground beef
1 teaspoon mixed herbs
1/2 teaspoon crushed garlic (or even less)
2 teaspoons baby creamed cheese (or Greek yogurt)
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon coriander, chopped
Olive oil (or baby cooking oil)

Digging in
Mix the beef, mixed herbs and garlic in a small bowl. Shape into mini patties. Heat a skillet with a drizzle of oil and cook patties until browned and cooked through.
Mix the cream cheese, lemon juice and coriander in a small bowl.
Top the rissoles with the cream cheese mixture and serve with whatever you baby desires.

Bon appetit!
