Egg Cutlets

If you’ve never heard about egg cutlets, it’s the time! Egg cutlets or patties are a popular vegetarian meal in Poland. They are easy to make, budget-friendly, and most importantly delicious! 🚀

The most simple version includes hard-boiled eggs, fresh herbs, green onions, and seasoning. That’s it!

If that’s not enough, you can make these cutlets your way! Feel free to add shredded cheese, crumbled feta, chopped ham, broccoli, cauliflower, or mushrooms.

Serve with fresh veggies on the side, mashed potatoes, asparagus, green beans, or a dipping sauce. Rice will work too!

A fabulous meatless lunch idea!

What you need

This is a simple recipe, so you won’t need many ingredients! I bet that you have most of them already in your pantry!

Here’s your checklist:

  • Hard-boiled eggs – mashed or finely chopped. I always mash the eggs with a fork.
  • One fresh egg
  • Bread crumbs or panko crumbs
  • Chopped chives or green onions
  • Chopped fresh parsley or dill
  • A little bit of mustard
  • Salt and pepper to season
  • Oil or butter for frying

Additionally, if you want to, you can add:

  • Finely chopped cooked broccoli, cauliflower, mushrooms – around 1/2 cup.
  • Chopped ham
  • Chopped smoked fish eg. salmon
  • Shredded cheese

These ingredients are totally optional, even without them, the patties will be flavorful and yummy! 🙂
