Meat Patties with Wine Sauce
500 gms assorted minced meat (better if minced at home)
1 sausage (if available)
1 handful of grated cheese
1 tps fennel or coriander seeds
salt and pepper
red or white wine, or tomato sauce
Mince the meat and add to the well drained and squeezed bread. Add all the other ingredients and hand mix until it is all well amalgamated. From into apricot sized balls, roll these in flour and then fry in abundant, but not toodeep, oil until golden on all sides. Drain on kitchen paper. At this point, if you want to serve them with a wine sauce, put them in a frying pan with extra virgin oil. When they start to sizzle add ½ glass of wine, ½ glass of water and a good lump of butter and continue cooking. When the sauce has a dense, velvet consistency the patties are rady to serve. If you prefer to use a tomato sauce, put 1 glass of water, salt and pepper and extra virgin olive oil in a frying pan and cook for 5 mins. Add the patties and continue cooking until the sauce is to your preferred thinckness.
