Carne Macinata

One egg for every 100 grams of meat
• (Mamma uses 1/2 kilo meat with 4 eggs)
Prepare a mixture of grated Parmigiano cheese, bread crumbs, and parsley.
Mix these ingredients together in a bowl.
Shape the meat into small patties and fill the center with a piece of soft cheese.
Place on a baking pan and cook in the oven.

This recipe is also used when grilling on citrus leaves. You place the meat mixture, minus the cheese, between two citrus leaves and grill. The aroma of the leaves penetrates into the meat.

It was one of our favorite places. I will look forward to checking back on your blog to see some of your photos and read your stories, and to trying some of these wonderful recipes!
