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.
I’m sure there’s a much more authentic way to make Mexican rice around now, but back in February 1972 Sunwhite rice published this recipe in the Woman’s Day. It mightn’t be a true taste of Mexico, but could still be a tasty dish.
This recipe comes from a Women’s Weekly segment entitled ‘Make-ahead Meatballs’. As it says it can be made the day before you need it and that can be really useful if you have a lot of people to cater for. I also think the corn chips and sour cream make it a winner!
I was really surprised to find this recipe in the collection. For many years Mum made a sausage dish that consisted of beef sausages, bacon, onion, corn, tomatoes and noodles. Although it was quite simple it was always a great hit and I’ve made in many times myself. This printed recipe is a bit fancier with chicken sausage, salami and garlic, but it’s basically the same idea. Either version is worth trying out.
