It's similar to polish kartacze, one difference is that we add grated raw pottatoes. They are traditional with meat but i prefer with lentils and beans or forest mushrooms and buckwheat.

Linda Allen says:

Lol damp hands make smooth balls? Did you really just say that?

Dang… I hate when I drool on my screen…. YUMMMMM


It looks delicious but I feel sorry that you have to hide the love of your life, Mr. Potato Head, because he's become persona non grata of the woke police.

I thinking ham and cheese in the center with the crispy bread crumbs on top.

Kim Gilbertsen says:

John, try the sweet version as well. Made the same way, but with half of a pitted Italian plum in the middle. After cooking the kloese, roll in sugar and lightly fry in a skillet with butter until lightly browned. Amazing!

Rey Rex says:

Probably extremely not traditional but chilled in a freezer then breaded, deep fried, and served with a béchamel or mornay and these things would be fair food

It’d basically be a stuffed fried mash potato ball with cheese sauce
