Mushroom and bacon risotto patties

Recipe: Mushroom And Bacon Risotto Patties


  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 small brown onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 rasher gluten-free rindless middle bacon, chopped
  • 100g button mushrooms, sliced
  • 2/3 cup arborio rice
  • 2 tablespoons finely grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 2/3 cup polenta salad leaves, to serve


  1. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook onion and garlic for 4 minutes or until softened.
  2. Add bacon and mushroom. Cook, stirring, for 4 to 5 minutes or until mushroom has softened.
  3. Add rice. Stir to coat. Add 1 cup cold water. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes or until rice has absorbed liquid.
  4. Add 3/4 cup cold water. Cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until rice is tender. Remove from heat. Stir in cheese. Spread rice mixture on prepared tray. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until cool enough to handle.
  5. Using 1/4 cup rice mixture per ball, roll into 8 balls. Flatten slightly. Place on a plate. Place egg into a shallow bowl. Place polenta on a plate. Dip 1 risotto patty into egg, then polenta. Place on a plate.
  6. Repeat with remaining patties. Heat remaining oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook patties for 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until browned and crisp. Set aside to cool.
  7. Divide patties between 4 microwave-safe containers. Place salad leaves in 4 snaplock bags. Refrigerate.
