3 egg yolks
8 ounces ground beef
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 Tablespoon (more or less) minced parsley
1 small onion grated or finely chopped
3 egg whites, beaten until soft peaks form
vegetable shortening or oil
Beat yolks until they are lemon-colored. Add the ground beef,
salt, baking powder, pepper, parsley and onion. Mix thoroughly.
Last, fold in the stiffly beaten egg whites and blend gently.
In a 10-inch skillet heat about 1/8 inch of shortening until hot.
Spoon heaping teaspoons of the meat mixture into medium heat
skillet. Let cook about 2 minutes on each side-- do not turn
meat until browned on first side (cook to 165ºF
internal temperature). Serve as soon as done with potatoes,
vegetables, or as desired. Serves 4 to 6.
