Zrazy – a popular dish in Eastern Europe, particularly Poland, Lithuania,Belarus and Ukraine. Traditionally zrazy is meat prepared with different toppings, such as mushrooms or eggs. And also, with potatoes. As a child I loved zrazy, but I cook them very rarely. Here I’ll show you my favorite recipe for potato zrazy, it’s very simple.



1. Make the puree; When the potatoes are cooked, strain and mash them, add egg, salt and pepper. Gradually add the flour,  you may need more or less flour, potato dough should not stick to your hands. Set aside, cool.


2. In the vegetable oil fry the finely chopped onion and garlic until golden.


3. Add beef, salt, pepper and fry until browned.


4. Lightly grease your hands with water or oil. Form the patties. Make an oblong in your hand out of the potato, add a spoonful of meat filling in the middle, now encase the filling by pressing the potato edges together.


5. Roll the patty in breadcrumbs, ensuring it is fully covered.


6. Fry over a medium heat until golden brown.


7. Voila! The potato zrazy ready. Serve hot with sour cream. I didn’t have any sour cream so I served mine with Bechamel sauce

Bon Appetit!
