    Default Update on the Rissoles.

    If I had it to do over, I think I would leave out the summer squash but it
    came along with the zucchini at Target so I used it. I just don't think it
    added anything in terms of flavor. And the flavor was not right to me. I
    like a well seasoned meatloaf. Although I am not really sure if Rissoles
    are supposed to taste like meatloaf or not. I added a lot more black pepper,
    more parsley, the remains of a jar of dried shallots and an equal amount of
    dried onion. The whole thing seemed to need more texture. It was like
    eating a little patty of baby food. Granted I only cooked up maybe a
    teaspoon of the mixture to taste. So I added two slices of fresh bread all
    crumbed up. I have seen recipes for these and also for meatloaf that don't
    use a filler but it seemed to me that this needed it. Also added a little
    more ketchup until it smelled right to me.

    I also think that the sweet rice flour isn't going to work for coating. It
    left a strange and greasy mouth feel. And the stuff doesn't brown. The
    pictures I've seen of Rissoles usually have a very dark, crispy outside to
    them. Either that or they are bad pictures. So I will use the whole wheat
    flour instead and hope that it works. At least the flavor will be right
    because there is whole wheat bread in the mix. I don't think the addition
    of bread is going to add too many carbs to the mix because if I were to bake
    this stuff in a bread pan like a meatloaf there would be enough to probably
    fill two pans to the top. And yes, somebody is probably going to tell me
    that I did use too many veggies in but... I think it will be fine.

    Summer squash. You know...the kind that looks like a zucchini but it's
    yellow? Comes packaged as a pair at Target.

    If it looked like zucchini, then it was yellow zucchini. If it
    narrowed and bent at one end, it's called crookneck.

    I think not but I'll Swagbuck it. Definately not a crookneck. I was right.
    There's even a picture of it. They call it yellow summer squash.

    Summer squash isn't a single type, it's many. Patty pan and zucchini
    are summer squashes too.

    True but the only name I've ever seen for this squash is summer squash.

    I think you'll eventually find it's a type of crookneck squash.
    That's okay, you don't have to believe me.

    No matter really to me because I don't intend to buy it again. I do buy it
    from time to time to add to soup but usually only when it looks fresh and
    the zucchini does not.

    I just served dinner to daughter. Reheated the Rissoles in a plain pan.
    They're not overly thick and I made them small so only took a couple of
    minutes to heat through. Served with a little brown rice with salt and
    olive oil. And some salt seasoned kidney beans cooked from dried. She
    loved it! All of it! So now I guess it's a good thing that I made a lot of
    them. I was a tad worried because there were so many. Was afraid we
    wouldn't like them.

    I'm not sure this would be something I'd make all the time because they are
    very time consuming. But I will certainly make them again.
