Ground beef mixture encased in a potato mixture and fried to a golden brown. An Iraqi snack, appetizer or as part of a meal. They are scarily addictive and delicious. Also, really ideal if you have some extra boiled potatoes you are looking to use up.
- 1 lb boiled potato
- 2 eggs
- 1 1⁄2 cups breadcrumbs
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1⁄2 cup almonds
- 1⁄4 cup fresh parsley, minced
- 1 dash salt
- 1 dash pepper, to taste
- Put meat, minced almonds, parsley on low fire for approximately 20 minutes. Mash potatoes and add eggs, mix well and add seasonings. Shape the potato mixture into a ball and stuff with the meat mixture. Slightly flatten to the shape similar to a patty no larger than your palm. Dip in bread crumbs and fry in hot oil on both sides until golden brown. Serve hot.
- Serve with Thousand Island dressing if you like or any other sauce that suits you.
- Keep napkin at ready to catch drool!
