Directions

Chop and grate all ingredients as indicated.

2. Combine cabbage, carrots, potatoes, onion, parsley, dill, and pepper.

3. Add eggs and mix well.

4. Gradually add the flour and salt until the mixture sticks together easily. Additional flour and salt may be added in the same proportions if needed to reach the proper consistency.

5. Form balls from the mixture that are about 1 inch in diameter.

6. Heat oil in a frying pan.

7. When oil is hot, add the balls a few at a time and let cook until browned on the bottom.

8. Squish them flat and flip them when they have browned enough to stick together. Continue cooking until both sides are browned.

                                                              

Notes: Be careful not to make the balls too large. They will not cook all the way through resulting in gooey centers.

 

Variations: Similar flat patties can be made with zucchini. Add ½ of a small shredded zucchini to the mixture along with an additional ¼ cup flour and ½ tsp salt. Garlic may also be added for a different taste.
