Heat the fat (I use oil) in a skillet and cook the meat and onions in it for 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Add the salt and pepper. Cool before placing in squares of dough.
*Kasha: 1 cup minced onions 3 tablespoons chicken fat or butter (depending on whether you are serving a meat or dairy dish) 1½ cups cooked kasha ¼ teaspoon pepper Lightly brown the onion in the fat or butter. Stir in the kasha and pepper.
*Cheese-Potato: ½ cup minced onions 3 tablespoons butter 1 ½ cups mashed potatoes ½ cup pot cheese 1 teaspoon salt ⅛ teaspoon pepper 1 egg Sour cream
Lightly brown the onions in the butter. Add the potatoes, cheese, salt, pepper and egg, beating until smooth. Serve with sour cream.
*Chicken: 1 ½ cups ground cooked chicken 4 tablespoons browned minced onions 1 egg yolk ¾ teaspoon salt 1 Dash pepper 1 tablespoon minced parsley
Blend all the ingredients together.
*Chicken liver: ½ pound chicken livers ½ cup minced onions 2 tablespoons chicken fat 2 hard-cooked egg yolks 1 teaspoon salt ⅛ teaspoon pepper
Cook the livers and onions in the fat for 10 minutes, mixing frequently. Grind or chop the livers, onions, eggs, salt and pepper.
