I love karbanatky! This recipe is delicious; although my mum never made them with the bellow listed sauce it is a fresh addition to the dish. You can decide if you like them “naked” or “dressed” with sauce…..


  • 1 lb ground meat
  • 1 olderFrench bagette “veka” (= about 3-4 slices of bread)
  • 1 onion, chopped into small pieces
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbs hot mustard
  • 1 cup of chicken broth
  • 3/4 cup of half-n-half
  • 1/2 tsp of marjoram
  • 3 tbs cornstarch
  • 3 tbs of oil
  • salt, pepper
  • Optional: about 4 slices of bacon, thinly sliced


  1. Mix ground meat, onion, bread, egg, mustard, salt, pepper, marjoram and stir well
  2. Form about 8 patties, about 1 inch thick
  3. Optional: wrap each patty with 1/2 slice of bacon (and fasten with a toothpick if necessary)
  4. Fry them on an oiled pan, about 6 minutes each side
  5. Remove meat patties from the pan and keep them warm
  6. For the sauce:
  • Mix cornstarch with cold half-n-half and
  • the cornstarch/half-n-half mixture and broth to the pan with all of the meat drippings left in it
  • Simmer until sauce gets thicker and bubbly

8. Serve the meat patties with potatoes; pour gravy over the meat as well as the potatoes

Good Appetite! Dobrou Chut! It’s delicious!
