It's usually good enough to eat on it's own with a side dish of potatoes or noodles. So, it is kind of like a burger/meatball/meatloaf in one! I made some of my own in smaller size. They can be as big or small as you want.
A pound to a pound and a half of ground beef.
1 or 2 eggs
Salt and pepper
finely diced onion
any more seasoning you want or add a bit of dijon mustard
form into small patties and cook stovetop in olive oil.
(this recipe was given to me by my friend Pia, who is German. She makes it the best I have ever had!)
I served with sauteed potatoes and green beans. Red wine is a good accompaniment. My preference is Jacob's Creek Shiraz!
Let me know if you try this out! Sorry for my vegetarian friends... if you don't like ground beef you might be able to try it with ground turkey, but make sure it is not the all white meat turkey!
