"This recipe is a family favorite that was passed down over the generations. Grandma and Pap just ate them plain, with a fork (sometimes dipped in ketchup), but our family likes to top these burgers with cheese and serve on a hamburger bun in a the traditional way. I have also seen these referred to as Kotlety Mielone. These can also be cooked on the grill."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

These were amazing leftover! Normally I don't like burgers leftover- they dry out and lose their flavor. But these kept their mositure and the flavor was great when I reheated one 2 days after I had initially made them. I made these small and served them on sweet Hawaiian rolls and topped them with cheese, tomato, and additional onion (since I love onion).
tasted like meatloaf and they fell apart to easy n quick. Couildnt really make it a burger. could flavor though
I made these with lean 85/15ground beef and red onion. The flavor from the onion and green pepper was wonderful. The bread seems to help keep the burgers moist, and it's not too much bread, even when putting the burgers on buns. I had leftovers and when I reheated a for lunch, it was still very moist and the flavor was even better the next day.
These were really yummy! A really nice variance on the typical burger. I used red onion and the flavor was fantastic. I made these burgers on the grill and topped them with white American cheese. The bread in these burgers helps to keep the moisture in the meat. I'm saving this recipe and will be making them again very soon.
These burgers were very moist and juicy and the flavor from the green pepper and the onion was fantastic. I grilled these and they turned out perfect- the green peppers and onion cooked perfectly in the meat and gave it a great flavor. I might have to make these instead of regular burgers from now on.
These are pretty good and quixk. My wife is Polish and this is the way her Mom made them when she was a kid so she really likes them.
It sounds like the person who gave this recipe one star didn’t even make it—how unfair--nor did he read the description correctly. The ‘traditional’ to which the contributor is referring, is that they served it with cheese, ketchup and on a bun—like a ‘traditional’ hamburger. Re Klupskies not being a word (really???), this is what this family called them—much like a nickname—does that mean it can’t be a good recipe? Plus, there are many family variations to most ‘traditional’ recipes –including Kotlety Mielone. Two wrongs don’t make a right, but maybe it will help, so I’m giving 5 stars without making it to help offset a very unfair and pompous review.
I couldn't make the all polish version of this so I made a Polish/Mexican version instead. I am on a limited budget and did not have any green pepper, but had all the other ingredients, so I used some jalapenos in an escabeche mixture instead. So I ciselered the jalapeno mixture and WOW, these were AWESOME.
