Recipe for Feb. 24 - Cottage Cheese Patties

Cottage cheese is widely used in Ukrainian cuisine in both sweet and savory dishes. Here is a recipe that will make your taste buds sing! Serve these savoury patties hot with sour cream.

2 large eggs
½ cup flour (about)
3 tbsp butter
½ caraway seeds (optional)
¼ cup water
1 tsp salt

1.Push cottage cheese through a sieve.
2.Beat eggs, salt, caraway seeds and about 6 tablespoons flour (use just enough to make firm enough to shape into patties).
3.Using wet hands, make 16 small patties and dip them in remaining flour sprinkled on a flat surface.
4.Fry 5-6 patties at a time, in 2 tablespoons hot (but not browned) butter. Add more butter as needed.
5.Brown on both sides, and remove patties to warmed platter.
Serves 4.

Try it - it's Ukrainian!
