Rated as 4.6 out of 5 Stars

"This recipe is a family favorite that was passed down over the generations. Grandma and Pap just ate them plain, with a fork (sometimes dipped in ketchup), but our family likes to top these burgers with cheese and serve on a hamburger bun in a the traditional way. I have also seen these referred to as Kotlety Mielone. These can also be cooked on the grill."

Directions

{{model.addEditText}} Print
  1. Mix ground beef, onion, green pepper, egg, ketchup, and sea salt together in a bowl; mix in the white bread pieces until evenly distributed. Form the mixture into 4 patties.
  2. Spray a large skillet with olive oil cooking spray and set over medium heat. Cook the burgers until well-browned on the bottoms, about 10 minutes; flip the burgers and cook until the meat is no longer pink and the juices run clear, 8 to 10 more minutes.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • For the juiciest burgers, do not press the meat and try to only flip once.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

It sounds like the person who gave this recipe one star didn’t even make it—how unfair--nor did he read the description correctly. The ‘traditional’ to which the contributor is referring, is th...

My Gramma made these my whole life, but with a few differences. She used only finely ground pork butts (shoulder) with all the fat trimmed. She grated an onion into the meat, used 4 pieces of d...

Delicious! I made them on the grill along with skewers of grilled veggies (the onions and bell peppers in the burgers went great with additional grilled vegetables.) I actually think I now prefe...
