Camping Meat Patties – popular polish recipe

Polish Meat Patties - served with potatos and beetroot

Camping meat patties known as ‘mielone’ are very popular in Poland as they are very simple to prepare and they taste great. We often fry them on our camping trips.

The secret of this recipe is a mix of two types of meat. Because of it – patties are soft and juicy. You can use any combination of pork, beef, or veal. We serve them with Aussie beetroots and cooked potatoes.

If you have any leftovers, the next day cut patties in half and use them for lunch – they taste great as a sandwich filler.

Camping Meat Patties – Instructions

  1. Chop one onion. It is good to cut it finely because it is easier to mix everything together later on.

2. Insert two types of meat into the large bowl, add onion, dry garlic, paprika, salt, and pepper, one egg, and around five tablespoons of bread crumbs.

In a proper polish meat patties recipe, it should be a slice of stale white bread soaked in milk, but since we are camping and we want to simplify things bread crumbs will do.

In my opinion, there is no difference in taste, but you can try both and let us know in the comments what tastes better.

3. Mix everything – if the mixture is crumbling add 1-2 teaspoons of water.

4. Divide mixed meat into 6-7 portions and form thick oval burgers. Roll each pattie in the bread crumbs. This will create a crunchy layer later on.

5. Add 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil to the skillet and once oil is hot add patties and fry them at the low temperature on both sides. If the frying pan is too hot meat will be burned from the outside and raw inside.

6. Shortly before serving julienne one onion fry it together with patties for a few minutes.

Serving suggestion

You can serve patties with mashed potatoes, but we simplified this process. We only cook potatoes and serve meat parties on top of boiled potatoes with fried onion and canned beetroots.
