Egg Free and Dairy Free Mince Meat and Potato Cutlets

These mince meat and potato cutlets, as they are called in our family or you can call them patties, are super easy to make. The mince can be substituted for any other kind of meat you like. They can be made in batches and frozen. The original recipe I am sure is very different from the version I make, as I have adapted it to suit our taste buds and dietary requirements.

They can be packed for school lunch or eaten as a side. I think these will go well as a side with my Chicken & Veggie Rice or Cauliflower Fried Rice or even an accompaniment to Chicken Corn Soup, in this cold weather.

Cook Notes

  • When frying make sure the oil is hot enough that the patty doesn't soak up the oil and disintegrates.
  • Can be frozen. Take a flat freezer safe platter, lay down the patties on the plate and freeze. Once frozen, take out of the freezer , let it sit for a few minutes, then put them in a freezer bag and refreeze.
