Rissoles are small croquettes, rolled in breadcrumbs or encased in pastry. They can be filled with sweet or savoury ingredients (mostly meat and fish), and can be served as a appetizer, side dish or dessert.

Australian rissole is made from minced meat and is pan fried, without any pastry covering, though it sometimes has breadcrumbs. Rissoles in Brazil are filled with cheese, sweetcorn or chicken.

There are various different types of rissole from different countries. To some, rissoles are small round patties, or balls of minced meat, potatoes or fish that are coated or combined with breadcrumbs.

Rissoles can also be a potato dish, known as rissole potatoes or rissole potato balls. When used as a meat dish, rissole can be referred to as Fried Fish Rissole, Grilled Meat Rissole or Salmon Rissole.

When in pastry form, it is similar to that of a turnover, and is fried or baked. Basically, rissoles can either be a round ball, a patty, or a food encased in pastry.

It is filled with sweet or savoury ingredients, most often minced meat or fish, and is served as an appetizer, dessert or side dish.

Rissoles are basically like meatloaf patties (bread crumbs, egg, etc.)
