  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.

  3. Put spinach in a ovenproof pan, cover with crumbles and bake at 356°F until the crumble is golden.
Recipe Notes

Of course you can use fresh spinach, it's even better and the making off is the same, you have to wash and rinse well the vegetables then put them in the pan until all the water is gone and the spinach are cooked.

You should use about 31 oz fresh spinach.

You can also sautee spinach in the pan with butter and some Parmesan to enrich this side dish.

Dutch piadina turnovers.

Dutch piadina turnovers.
Instructions
  1. Boil chopped vegetables in salted water untill thender
  2. In a pan sautee smoked bacon until gold.
  3. Smash vegetable with a fork, add sour cream and bacon then mix well.
  4. As usual, when I make this kind of "unconventional" turnovers, I make them quite small so make pieces of dough of about 70-80 gr, spread them with a rollpin and put filling inside. Close and cook on a hot skillet but take care to take the heat low because turnovers need time to cook, if the heat is too much they burn.
  5. This kind of turnover is better if eaten warm and not hot.
