CORN AND BEEF FRITTERS

To begin with I thought this was corn beef fritters (which would have been good), but when I read the ingredients I realised it’s rissoles/hamburgers with corn, which is till a good mix.  I think they’d also work well if you used minced pork with a bit of soy sauce or even minced chicken.

GRAPEFRUIT PRAWN APPETISER

Quite frankly this sounds a bit weird – even for the 70s.  It’s a strange combination of a prawn cocktail and grapefruit.  I used to make a grapefruit appetiser by halving a grapefruit, segmenting it, pouring in sweet sherry, sprinkling on brown sugar and then grilling the lot – it tasted quite good and was quick and easy to make.  It was also pretty cheap (a definite consideration back then).  I also used to make prawn cocktails, but only for very special dinners as they stretched the budget  quite a bit, but I never combined the two and I don’t think I’ll start now.

SEASONED VEAL ROLL

This recipe was published by the Women’s Weekly in August 1992.  Veal was more popular back then and wasn’t as expensive as it is now.  I make a similar roast using beef so I think you could substitute beef or even lamb as the main meat and you change the minced veal as well.
