  • 6 slices stale rye bread or pumpernickel bread
  • 1 large apple (leave skin on), chopped
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup plus 1/8 cup milk, divided
  • Flour
  • Margarine, for greasing pie plate
  • Cinnamon, for sprinkling
  • Butter, for dotting each patty


Pre-heat the oven to 325°F.

Tear the bread into 1/2-inch long pieces. Put the bread pieces into large bowl and add the apple and onion. Add some milk (start with 1/4 cup and then add another 1/8 cup until you get the desired consistency) and shape the mixture with your hands into patties. You should wind up with six patties total. Add a bit of flour if it is too gooey.

Place the patties into a greased pie plate and sprinkle with cinnamon. Then dot each patty with butter.

Bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes and serve alongside a roast pork loin.
