Egg patties is a simple vegetarian dinner idea, in Poland they are often served for dinner in school canteens and milk bars. They are also loved and cooked in Polish families. Crispy egg patties can be served with cooked potatoes or kasza: buckwheat or barley. They will taste great with carrot and peas with a roux, or with mushroom sauce. Check this easy recipe.

Egg patties served on a plate


  • 10 hard boiled eggs
  • 2 raw eggs
  • 2 tablespoons chopped dill
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • half stale roll
  • half cup milk
  • small onion
  • oil for frying (I use rape seed oil)
  • breadcrumbs for tossing

Mushroom sauce:

  • 450 g/ 1 lb fresh mushrooms (champignons)
  • medium onion
  • 1 cup cream 30%
  • half cup vegetable stock
  • 1 tablespoon wheat flour
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 heaping tablespoons butter

Saute chopped onion in a 2 tablespoons of oil. Set aside to cool.

Place stale roll in a small bowl with milk for soaking.

Chop hard boiled eggs or fork blend them, Add raw eggs, dill and cooled sauteed onion. Add drained roll. Season with salt and pepper. Combine all well and form patties. From this amount of ingredients you’d get about 10-12 patties. Toss patties in breadcrumbs and place them for an hour in a fridge before frying.

Fry in rape seed oil on medium till brownish. It would take about 4 minutes on each side.

Serve egg patties with mushroom sauce:

Chop the onion. Saute onion in butter, add diced mushrooms, season with salt and pepper. Pour in cream mixed with half cup of vegetable stock and a tablespoon of all purpose flour, turn heating on low and let it thicken.

  1. Could this recipe be halved? There are only 2 in our household, plus I would like to try a smaller batch the first time to make sure we like them! They sound so good though!
