Kotleti - Polish Hamburgers
Main Course

Kotlety (Polish Hamburgers)



  • 1 slice white bread (stale)
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup milk
  • 3/4 pound ground beef
  • 1/4 to 1/2 pound pork (lean ground)
  • 1 small onion (finely chopped)
  • 1 large egg (slightly beaten)
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste


In a large bowl, soak the bread in milk until soft. Add beef, pork, onion, egg, salt, and pepper, and mix thoroughly. If mixture feels too mushy, add 1 to 2 tablespoons of breadcrumbs. Divide the meat mixture into 4 to 6 portions and form each into a round or oval hamburger shape. Lightly coat a skillet with cooking spray and very slowly fry the patties thoroughly until done. For food safety, you want both the pork and the beef to be cooked to a safe temperature. Serve as you would a hamburger sandwich or like Salisbury steak with mashed potatoes and mushroom sauce or another type of gravy.  Cover and refrigerate any leftover hamburger patties. You can reheat them in the microwave to use for sandwiches or a main course protein.
