Meat patties

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Meat patties are just an ordinary weekday meal, but whenever one make and eat them, they always are as good.

There are many ways to make a patty dough: you can use chicken, turkey, lamb, pork or beef and you can spice them just the way you like. As already said in the previous post (meatloaf) I use minced pork meat if possible because it absolutely is  the best and tastiest of the minced meats. Minced meat made of pork and beef is still good enough to use, but if there is only those made of pure beef in the store shelves I just leave it there. I also prefer a high fat content in the meat, because it’ll produce more flavour in the patties.

To get different tastes you can put in for example cheese, chili, mushrooms or whatever happens to fit your taste desires.

PORTION: 4 persons
TIME TO MAKE: 30 minutes

INGREDIENTS:

  • 500g minced pork or pork and beef meat
  • 1 yellow onion
  • 1 egg
  • 1½ teaspoons of salt
  • ¼ teaspoons of white pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of paprika powder
  • ½ teaspoon of savory (dried and ground)
  • 2 teaspoons of lovage (dried and ground)
  • ½ dl cream (or water)
  • ½ dl breadcrumbs (gluten free)
  • ½ dl cream (or water)

Sweat a finely chopped onion in a frying pan. Let cool a bit before adding in to the dough.

Put all the ingredients in a bowl and make a dough, but do not overwork it, handle it as little as possible. Taste and add salt or pepper if needed.

Moisten your hands with cold water before starting the patting of patties. Size can be just as you like them, big or small, but remember that they all should be the same size so they cook at the same rate.

Bake in a medium heat pan, until evenly cooked and nicely brown. I always wash the pan after each round, because all the meat crumbs and small pieces of onion still left in the pan will otherwise burn during the next round and the result does not look or taste very nice.

I prefer patties baked in a frying pan, but you can also bake them in the oven. Bake for about 15-20 minutes in 220°C (428°F).

Absolutely on their best when served with potato mash!
