Mince Slices – Ration Book Recipe No. 207

This is such a quick, economical and tasty recipe. Even as a non meat eater I was able to create this using soya mince and it worked really well! I only used half the ingredients listed below and it made 6 slices so enough for dinner and enough for sandwiches tomorrow!

Ingredients

  • 8 oz mince (any cooked meat)
  • 4 oz mashed potato
  • 4 oz stale breadcrumbs
  • salt and pepper
  • any fat for frying

Method

  1. Mix well together the mince, mashed potato, breadcrumbs and seasoning.
  2. Turn out on a floured board and roll out into an oblong 1/4 inch thick (mine was thicker)
  3. Cut into slices and fry in a small quantity of hot fat from your ration until browned or grill for 5-7 minutes.

Serves 4

    • Yeah, they do look good actually.

      So basically, they’re very ‘burger-like’, but cut into oblongs or slices rather than formed into patties.

      Personally, I’d be tempted to add a little fresh minced red chilli into the mixture. But of course, if we’re talking authenticity, chillies didn’t really take off in the UK until quite some years after the war.

  2. This looks fantastic!
    Sadly, being allergic to soy and a non-meat eater, it would need a change or two. Do you think that brown lentils would work?
    Glad that you are finding new and tasty things to enjoy in Week 1!
    God Bless!
