Dill & Pork Patties

Prep time: 15-20 minutes

Cook time: 8-9 minutes per batch


  • 1 lb ground pork
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1/4 cup diced fresh dill
  • 6 large slices of Italian bread (or you can use 1/2 cup breadcrumbs)
  • Vegetable oil (amounts will vary depending on size of pan)
  • 3 whole egg
  • 2 egg whites
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. In a medium pot or bowl add in the slices of bread. Top with warm water and set aside for at least 1 hour.
  2. In a small skillet add in 1-2 tbsp. vegetable oil. Add in the onion and cook for several minutes on medium heat until soft and translucent. Set aside.
  3. In a medium sized bowl add in the ground pork. Take the bread from the water bowl and drain the bread the best you can. Add the bread into the pork.
  4. Add in one egg and season with salt and pepper. Mix well using your hands or a wooden spoon.
  5. In a clean bowl add in the 2 egg whites. Using a hand held electric mixer whip until you reach stiff peaks.
  6. Add the egg whites and dill to the pork and mix well.
  7. Prep 3 separate bowls adding the remaining 2 eggs into one bowl, flour in the next and bread crumbs in the third.
  8. Season each with some salt and pepper and mix.
  9. Taking about 1/3 cup of the meat mixture at a time made a oval patty about 1/4 inch thick.
  10. Coat the patty in the flour, then the egg and then the bread crumbs.
  11. Set aside and continue this process with the remaining ground pork.
  12. In a medium sized skillet add in enough oil to cover about 1 cm of the bottom.
  13. Leaving the heat on medium allow the oil to heat up.
  14. Place about 3-4 patties in the pan at a time. Cook for about 4 minutes on each side. Once fully cooked through remove from the pan, plate and ENJOY!
