This recipe is typically made with ground pork, but you can replace it with other kinds, like beef or turkey. Here I mixed 1 lb of ground pork with 1 lb of ground turkey.
2 lbs. ground pork, or other meat.
6 garlic cloves
1 large onion
2 and 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 and 1/3 cups plain bread crumbs, plus some extra to cover the patties
Peel and finely grate the potatoes. Grate or finely dice the onion. Crush the garlic using a garlic press.
Mix all ingredients together.
In a large skillet, heat some oil on medium-low heat. Use just enough oil to cover the bottom of the skillet.
Take about 1/3 cup meat mixture at a time, with your hands roll it into a ball, then press to flatten, as pictured below.
Pour some bread crumbs on a plate. Place each patty in bread crumbs and cover both sides.
Test the oil to see if it’s hot, by placing a drop of the meat mixture in it. When it’s sizzling, add the patties to the oil. Keep the stove on medium-low temperature. Fry on both sides, until golden brown.
Remove from pan. Place on a plate with a paper towel on bottom, to absorb the oil.
Move the patties to a serving platter and serve.
Serving Suggestions: Serve with mashed potatoes and fresh salad.
