Step 1

I usually freeze my leftover meat. So need to thaw. Then put leftovers in a meat grinder and grind. Add eggs, evaporated milk and some flour until you can make a patty. Roll in flour. Put aside till all are done. Then heat oil in frying pan. Fry patties till golden brown.

Need a meat grinder. Great with BBQ sauce. Also good for a breakfast item.
