Meat and Potato Patties
Total TimePrep: 10 min. Cook: 25 min.
I grew up eating this as a kid. But we put rice in it and called it porcupine balls
I made this recipe for dinner, and gave it a spicy update: I used spicy taco sauce and salsa in place of the tomato juice. When the patties were done I topped them with Mexican blend cheese. We loved them!
Doesn't say when to add the tomato juice?
My Grandfather had a slight version of this. He omitted the potatoes from the meat. He made meatballs instead and added a whole sliced onion. He used a can of tomato juice and adjusted the amount of flour and water to make the slurry. He then put the lot in a Dutch oven and dubbed it Millionaire’s Stew. He served it on top of mashed potatoes. It’s still a family favourite.
These old retro recipes can’t be bet. The are such comforts foods. Very satisfying and family friendly. V F E
Does it have to be shredded potato? Can you use mashed potatoes instead?
This recipe is a family favorite. I usually triple it for my 3 teenage sons, husband and small grandson. They love it made according to the recipe or with tomato soup or V8. I've yet to make this with crackers instead of potatoes, but I will soon, given the current supply situation. Thank you for this good old fashioned delicious recipe!
I’ve made this for years using my mother’s recipe. We like a creamier sauce to put over mashed potatoes. I mix one can tomato soup with one can water. Add a little chili powder and pour over cabbage rolls while cooking.its a family favorite.
I really enjoy this. I also freezes well, which is important to me.
Looks great, but could you use jar or packet beef gravy and obtain the same results. My concern would be the gravy simmering for 25 min.
