DIRECTIONS

  • Let 1 tsp butter melt in a pan, add onion and garlic and let fry until translucent.
  • Add milk to the onion and garlic.
  • Add milk and garlic/onion mixture to the bread cubes, as well as the rest of the ingredients.
  • Mash thoroughly and let dough rest for about 20 minutes.
  • Form small balls and flatten to patties and either fry in solidified butter until crispy or put in oven for about 20 to 25 minutes at 200°C until they are golden brown (tastes nearly as good as the lucious fried version).
  • Enjoy in soup or as a main dish with salads.
