Italian Leftover Beef Patties – Polpette di bollito

Things I made with leftover beef – stuffed crepes or piroshki, okroshka, spaghetti lasagna casserole or cottage pie, and, for sure, navy-style pasta. I found another great way to use it – Italian meat patties, adapted from Russian blog Trio-Mia. Fast, tasty and easy. In Italian recipe I found boiled potato in mixture, so I’ll try it next time.

Italian Leftover Beef Patties

Yield: 8 patties

12 oz. cooked (boiled, roasted or baked) round top beef, sliced in chunks
1 egg + 1 egg white
2 slice white bread
1/2 cup milk
1 tbsp. Parmesan cheese
2 tbsp. chopped parsley
1 tsp. paprika
pinch of ground nutmeg
salt and pepper
2 tbsp. breadcrumbs (I used matzo meal)

Soak bread in milk in small bowl. Cut meat into small pieces, grind in a blender with 1 egg, parsley, bread and milk, add salt, pepper, paprika and nutmeg to taste. Make 8 patties, dip each in egg white and roll in breadcrumbs. Cook in preheated skilled, oiled or sprayed with cooking spray, about 3-4 minutes in both sides, until golden brown. Great hot and cold too.

1 patty is about 130 calories
