Mince the beef very finely (if underdone it will be better)
Add to it the bacon, which must also be chopped very small
Mix well together
Season, stir in the herbs, and bind with an egg, or 2 should 1 not be sufficient
Make it into small square cakes, about 1/2 inch thick
Fry them in hot dripping
Serve in a dish with good gravy poured round them

This looks delicious! I'll be trying it soon for a dinner party.
Seeing that the weather is getting cooler.cant wait to try this soup,and many others.
I really wish these directions were clear. My daughter and I tried making this today and were quite disappointed.
Sorry to hear that Kelly. I will let me partner know. Although I am sure
this is the way the recipe is written.
I love this recipe! Our book club just finished reading a novel set in Colonial America and part of our party fun is making dishes set around that time. Our group is big fans of historical fiction and I think your website is terrific! The recipe came out perfect everyone loved the pie. Take a look on my website booknparty.com under book party ideas.
