Klupskies (Polish Burgers)


This Polish burger 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 traditional way. I have also seen these referred to as Kotlety Mielone. These can be cooked on the grill.

  • 1 pound ground beef

  • 1 small onion, diced

  • ½ green pepper, diced

  • 1 egg

  • 2 tablespoons ketchup

  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt

  • 2 slices white bread, torn into small pieces

  • cooking spray with olive oil


  1. Mix ground beef, onion, green pepper, egg, ketchup, and sea salt together in a bowl; mix in 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.

Cook's Note:

For the juiciest burgers, do not press the meat and try to only flip once.
