  1. Cut apple in tiny cubes and mix it into the meat with yolks and a generous pinch of salt and pepper. Form meatballs the size of a big walnut and roll them into the flour.
  2. Melt the butter in a frying pan, add chopped onion and let it sautee until soft; add meatball, let them get brown gold on all sides then add the sugar and white wine keeping fire high for a minute.
  3. Keep cooking on low fire, with a lid on, for about 20 minutes. I think they are better warm than hot.

Instructions
  1. Melt yeast into lukewarm water, knead all the ingredients except egg and form a smooth loaf.
  2. Let the loaf rise in a bowl, covered with cling film, for about one hour.
  3. Spread the dough with a rollpin, about 1/2 inch tall. Cut rectangles, the size you like ( small are ok as finger food, bigger can be cut in half and stuffed like a sandwich; if you prefer you can bake it as a single, big focaccia), brush with beaten egg and let them rise again into the baking tin covered with a cloth for about 30- 40 minutes.
  4. They will not rise a lot, it's ok. Bake at 356°F for 20-30 minutes, they have to reach a gold colour but pay attention as they can turn black quite quickly.
