Notes about this recipe

  • Eat Your Books

    Can substitute prosciutto for serrano ham, bread crumbs for matzo meal, and olive oil for sunflower oil.

    I had no idea these were made from a (very thick) bechamel sauce! The mixture was quite easy to work with chilled and the flavour was fantastic.

    I used matza flour for the first coating and panko for the second coating and they came out quite well.
