Klupskies (Polish Burgers)

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by BrandiRose

This recipe is a family favorite that was passed down over the generations. Grandma and pap just ate them plain, with a fork (sometimes dipped in ketchup), but our family likes to top these burgers with cheese and serve on a hamburger bun in a the traditional way. I have also seen these referred to as Kotlety Mielone. For the juciest burgers, do not press the meat and try to only flip once.

I cooked these on an indoor foreman type grill and served as burgers with all of the toppings. They went together easily and reminded us of a meatloaf sandwich (in a good way). I paired them with your macaroni salad for Spring Safari Pick A Chef 2013 event.

  2. Tear bread up into small chunks (1/2 inch pieces) and mix into the beef until the pieces are evenly distributed.
  3. Form meat into 4 patties.
