Makes 5 portions
500g mashed potato, cooled
Bring the milk and butter to a boil. Add flour and salt.
Cook for about 10 minutes on low heat (like a roux).
Reserve on a flat tray to cool, mixing all the time so it doesn't create a crust.
Add cooled mashed potato and mix.
Add the egg and mix well.
Cut and portion.
Cook briefly in boiling water until they rise to the surface.
Note: At Bella Cucina it is served with cherry tomatoes, which are halved and marinated with confit garlic, rosemary, and thyme under our heat lamps, a few dollops of ricotta, crushed walnuts and shaved parmesan.
