About this recipe: One way we use up all the bits created from making our biltong that doesn't go in our packets. We do sell them online too as hard to find in this country - you can buy it in pots in South Africa called biltong dust. We served it with Claire's fabulous chilli sauce from Spice n' Easy.

Serves: 4 

  • oil for frying
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 150g biltong bits or finely chopped soft biltong
  • 60g plain flour
  • 1 thick slice of bread, grated into crumbs
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • salt and pepper to taste

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:25min 

  1. Saute the onion and garlic till soft. Transfer to a bowl.
  2. Add all remaining ingredients to bowl - you should get a firm mixture that is really easy to make into small balls. Roll into balls and flatten slightly.
  3. Heat 1cm of oil in a frying pan over medium high heat. Fry the balls till lightly browned on both sides.


We fried ours, but are sure they could be brushed with oil and roasted for a slightly healthier version! Try adding your favourite dried spices to taste.
