Introduction: Meat Patties
Second Prize in the
Snack Food Contest
This is one of the famous snack that every body likes.It takes a while to make,so I always make a huge amount and freeze them.
When ever I have guests or feel like having home made Patties ,I take it out from the freezer an hour early to defrost. It is already semi fried/semi baked , so that it does not get pasted in the fridge.. Once it is defrosted I fry it over again until golden brown.
If you don't want to fry, you can apply egg yolk on top of the patties and bake them until golden brown.
Baking is much more healthier,but I like it Fried ,as it is much more tastier.
I am publishing with more pictures ,so that every body understands well looking at the pictures alone.
Enjoy with your favourite choice of Sauce...Super delicious...

I am a day care mom who is working full time,and do not have enough time for my sewing and crafting work which I love it very much.If ever I win the laser cutter I will give up my full time job or reduce it to a couple of hours(because I do a lot of craft work with the kids and they will be dissapointed to see me no more)and start my own business at home as I have enough and more sewing orders which I can not do it on time.Every instructable I do with the help of the laser cutter,I will definetly post it on this great site.
