Mince Stuffed Cutlets 

When I was in college, these “Mince Stuffed Cutlets” was one of the first recipes I ever added to my regular rotation.

Mince Stuffed Cutlets is a great appetizer that involves soft delicate potato patties stuffed with seasoned cooked mince. Delicious and crispy patties that can be made in just 35 minutes. These make a great snack or appetizer or even a starter for parties or perfect for weekend meals.

I used to fill my cutlets with spinach, broccoli, cheese, or whatever ingredients I have in my hand. It’s so fun to experiment with different ingredients, home cooking should be easy and fun! Although I enjoyed a lot of combinations, mince stuffed cutlets was always my favorite (and cheese, too).

I know it seems quite far apart but when you take a bite it taste very close to the potato chops.

There are many variations I have seen online. Some use a little flour mixed with the potato mash, an egg wash, bread crumbs and cornflour. You can make it vegetarian by using cooked peas and carrots in garam masala with some onions and fresh coriander then mixed with the mashed potato and shallow fried. You can replace the lamb mince with cooked ground chicken or beef, or fish. Try getting more creative: This is great fun – keep adding different ingredients to taste the different flavors.
