Beef and rice Croquettes with Tomato onion gravy

This is a simple and fabulous little recipe when you have a fridge full of leftovers and beef mince and no inspiration. If your kids like sausages, and won't eat veges you can vary these any way you like. This is also great when you're on a budget!

Ingredients: (makes 17 croquettes - so some for leftovers!)
500 grams lean beef mince
1 1/2 cups cooked rice
2 eggs
1 tb sweet paprika
2 tb dijon mustard
1 clove garlic, minced or finely chopped
1/2 onion, grated
- if you wish add 1/2 carrot grated, and/or peas or corn

Gravy: 2tb olive oil, 1 onion, thinly sliced, 420gr tin diced tomatoes, salt, pepper

Preheat oven to 200 degrees c
Spray baking tray with canola spray

Mix above ingredients in bowl and mould into croquet (i.e. sausage-like) forms with hands and place on baking tray
Bake for 15 minutes, then turn over and bake for a further 10 minutes.
Whilst croquettes are baking, prepare gravy:
Heat oil in deep fry pan, add onions and fry until soft.  Add tomatoes and fill the can 1/2 with water, add to tomatoes and add salt and pepper.  Simmer.
When croquettes baked, add to gravy and simmer for 10 minutes, ensuring you turn the croquettes to get them covered in gravy.
Serve with mash or scalloped tomatoes and greens.  Eat leftovers hot or cold.
