But what about their nutritional content? I recently joined the Spark and started realising, how full of calories my family's cooking always been... Semolina (manka) for example - its like 200 calories per serving and the serving size is 3/4 cup! I'd always eat a bowl of it and think it's not even a "real" food!
Serve these for brunch, breakfast, or even dessert.
1 lb farmer cheese 2 eggs 2 tablespoons sugar 1 teaspoon salt 1/2 cup flour plus a little extra 2 tablespoons butter Sour cream and/ or preserves for serving
In a food processor, pulse the farmer’s cheese until it is crumpled. Add the eggs, sugar, salt, and ˝ cup of flour. Mix to combine. Refrigerate 1 hour, or overnight. The dough will remain thick but sticky.
Put approximately 1/3 cup of flour into a bowl, and use this to prevent the dough from sticking to your hands. Using 2 teaspoons, drop 1˝” balls of dough into the flour, roll them round, and flatten to about 3/8” thick. Place them on a plate in a single layer until the patties are all formed.
Heat a frying pan with 1 T. butter, and fry the patties on each side until golden. You will need to add more butter as you go.
Serve hot with sour cream, preserves or both. This recipe will make approximately 20 small patties.
