Caramelised Onion Rissoles

If I haven't made it clear in the past, let me make it clear now.  I.  Hate.  Cooking.  I wish I was wealthy and could hire someone to tend to my every eating and meal desire.  But reality is, I have to cook every so often to keep husby happy.  We often eat eggs on toast for dinner.  Frozen dinners.  Oh so healthy I hear you saying!!  But I do cook on occasion, and sometimes my knowledge of flavour combinations surprises me. 

Now I bought some lovely fresh bread rolls at the shops this week so decided homemade burgers was a good idea.  So I defrosted my beef mince and somehow managed to come up with this SUPER tasty awesome excellent delicious makes you want to eat ten of them rissole recipe.  :)  Enjoy!

Caramelised Onion Rissoles  

500g beef mince
1 large onion, diced small
1 tbspn minced garlic
1 tbspn raw sugar
1 tspn vegetable stock powder
4 tbspn fried shallots (found in Asian section)
2 eggs
Plain flour

Cook your onion, garlic and raw sugar over a low heat, stirring regularly until the onion is soft and caramelised.  Then in a large bowl combine the onion, mince, vegetable stock, dried shallots, and 2 eggs.  Mix well, and add Polenta until consistency is right.  Then roll into balls and cover in flour.  Cook over a medium heat with a little bit of olive oil in the pan. 

Add it to a fresh bread roll and some salad and get some of that into ya!! Mmmm!

But wait, there's more!

So I have a blog, I have an online store, I work part time, do Hairdressing from home, am a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, am an Administrator on TWO Facebook group sites (which is a huge job in itself).  I was starting to get too comfortable.  So I decided to add something else to the list, for good measure!!!  

I finally got around to starting up my own Facebook Business page yay!  I would LOVE it if you had a chance to pop over and say hi and 'like' the page!  

I am looking to do a giveaway on my new Facebook page very very soon!  I am hoping to get a few more followers first.  So make sure you 'like' my page so that you can be apart of it!

I've been super busy lately detoxing my house!!! We live with my parents in the upper storey of their house, we don't have much space.  So everything is very cramped and it's been driving me BONKERS so the last couple of weeks I've been pulling apart the cupboards and boxes and drawers and everything!  Getting rid of things, repacking things in a better way.  I'm ALMOST done.  So there hasn't been TOO much crafting going on lately.. just a few cards :)  Hope everyone's doing well!
