Updated: Aug 12, 2020

I"m bringing you a healthy version of the Russian cutlet/kotlet recipe.This yummy dish is a staple in Eastern European and Russian cuisines and is usually served along with mashed potatoes (potato puree) or buckwheat kasha . Traditional Russian cutlet recipe uses a mixture of ground beef, potatoes, onions, soaked bread and eggs. It is formed into oval shaped patties, breaded and fried on a skillet. Today there are many different types of Russian cutlet/katlet recipes including chicken, turkey and vegetarian varieties.

My super easy Russian cutlet recipe uses ground turkey (ground chicken will work as well), red onion, parsley, an egg, Himalayan pink salt and black pepper. This Russian cutlet recipe doesn't use soaked bread or breadcrumbs, it's completely grain free, gluten free, keto and whole30 friendly, and just as delicious as traditional cutlets. This Russian cutlet recipe is a great choice on busy weeknights since it's ready in just 30 minutes.
