450g lean minced beef
3 tablespoons bread crumbs
1/4 cup finely chopped onions
1/4 cup chopped parsley
1/2 cup milk
5 tablespoons butter
3 medium onions, sliced
4 eggs for frying
salt and ground black pepper
1- Put the beef in a mixing bowl, add the bread crumbs, chopped onion, egg and parsley and mix well. Gradually stir in the milk until thoroughly blended to make a soft, moist mixture. Season with salt and pepper. Refrigerate for 15 to 30 minutes.
2- Melt 3 tablespoons of the butter in a pan over a medium heat. Divide the meat mixture into four and form rounded patties. Place in the pan and cook for 8 to 10 minutes until browned, turning once. Remove from the pan and keep warm.
3- Melt the remaining butter in the pan, add the sliced onion and cook for 6 to 8 minutes, until soft and golden. When the onions are ready, fry the eggs in a little hot oil in a separate pan.
4- To serve, place the patties on four serving plates and top each with a spoon of cooked onions. Place a fried egg on the onions, season the egg with salt and pepper and served immediately.
– These are not meat balls they are beef patties.
