the electric frypan of love, Part II

  • crack an egg into a medium sized bowl.
  • add a splash of soy sauce, a few shakes of garlic salt, ditto lemon pepper, and a few strinkles of cajun spices if you're feeling lucky.
  • add two splashes of sweet chilli sauce.
  • Grate half a large carrot and dump that in too.
  • Finally add half a large onion, finely chopped.
  • Mix.
  • Throw in 500g of prime beef mince. The egg mixture acts a binder as well as a flavouring, so make sure to mix thoroughly.
  • Roll balls of mince and coat with bread-crumbs.
  • Put your electric frypan on about 6 or 7, add a little bit of oil and cook the rissoles until crispy-brown. Turn often, and don't forget to brown the sides!
  • Eat with vegetables to your own taste. Instead of tomato sauce I recommend making an half 'n half concoction of bbq sauce and sweet chilli sauce.

If you were paying attention to my first electric frypan of love, you will begin to see why I'm not a terribly good cook. Yup, half the ingredients are exactly the same. In fact, except for unadorned meat dishes (you know, chuck the lamb chop/steak/pork slices in and cook the hell out of), I can't think of any complex dish I make without sweet chilli sauce. Christ, even my macaroni cheese uses a mixture of lemon and sweet chilli tunas.

What would Freud say?

ps while checking out the spelling of macaroni I found out that the word also refers to:
1. A well-traveled young Englishman of the 18th and 19th centuries who affected foreign customs and manners.
2. A fop.
Who would have thunk it?
