Klupskies (Polish Burgers) 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.

prep: 15 mins cook: 20 mins total: 35 mins Servings: 4 Yield: 4 burgers


  • 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
  • 1 serving cooking spray with olive oil


    Step 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.

    Step 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.
