Germans call it Frikadellen, Poles call it Kotlety... let's call the whole thing off and just say YUMMY. My mother makes these often and sometimes in our polish household we have them with a nice mushroom gravy on top. They are something of a cross between a flattened meatball and a small burger patty.

When we were kids my mom would make these as a snack, even; she would put them all on a big plate, leave them out on the counter and they would stay warm, but cool down enough where we could just grab them with our hands and eat them as is.
