Turkey Rissoles: a Thrifty Recipe

There is not much of a story attached to this recipe which I even didn't cook. Lucky that a picture exist as it was almost not taken. So why blog about turkey rissoles, do I hear you say? Well, This dish tastes just fantastic and it's a prime candidate for saving money.

Let me explain, on hearing that Pebble Soup had entered a competition with the stupendous Turkey Melon, he (not being competitive) decided that he could do better and produced perfectly formed rissoles.

 Unsure of what the difference is between Rissoles, Patties and Boulettes, it's worth underlining that these rissoles were made with defrosted left over from the Xmas turkey. Sometimes, it's worth having a dig in the freezer or the pantry with an open mind.
I was so impressed that not only I am entering them in I Love Turkey competition but also in Credit Crunch Munch, a joint challenge run Fab Food 4 All and Fuss Free Flavours and as we say in France "que le meilleur gagne."
