Cook Time: 45 min.[PT45M]


8 medium potatoes
3.5 oz minced beef
3.5 oz minced pork
1 onion
1 lb 2 oz ripe tomatoes
1 egg
Olive oil


Peel the potatoes and slice finely. Fry in olive oil, drain and set aside. For the filling, first brown the minced meat in a little oil. In a separate pan, sauté the peeled and seeded tomatoes together with the chopped onion. Add the meat and bind everything together with a thick béchamel sauce made with the milk and flour.

Take two potato slices at a time and place a little stuffing between them. Coat with beaten egg and fry until they turn an attractive golden brown. Drain and serve.
