Mortadella meatballs


  • 280 g potatoes (approx. 2 medium-small)
  • 100 g Mortadella
  • 50 g grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg
  • salt
  • nutmeg
  • breadcrumbs
  • Frantoio extra virgin olive oil by Pruneti


  • Boil the potatoes (I cooked them for 5-10 minutes in the microwave).


  • Peel them and mash them with a fork in a bowl or, as I did, mash them with all their skin in a potato masher.


  • Chop the mortadella with a knife, not too finely.


  • Add the mortadella, egg, salt (just a pinch, or the meatballs will be too tasty) and nutmeg to the bowl.


  • Start mixing, then incorporate the Parmesan into the mixture.


  • With dampened hands, begin to form the meatballs, the size of a large walnut, passing them as you go in the breadcrumbs and then placing them on a plate.


  • Heat a little Frantoio extra virgin olive oil by Pruneti in a non-stick frying pan and start cooking the meatballs, turning them occasionally (gently) to brown them evenly.


  • As soon as the bologna patties are golden brown, serve them immediately.
