Timbale with Murazzano Cheese

Featured by Rivetto in the International Wine Club.


1 lb. seasoned Murazzano cheese,
1 -1/4 lbs. potatoes, 1/4 lb. sliced ham, bread crumbs,
1 egg, butter, extra virgin olive oil, salt, pepper.


Boil the potatoes (soft enough to pierce with a fork), peel and let them cool down. Thinly slice the potatoes, dip in beaten eggs and bread crumbs. Then fry the potatoes with olive oil. Place on blotting-paper and add a little salt. Rub the baking pan with butter and layer the bottom with the potatoes. Cut the cheese in slices and put them on top of the potatoes. Let the two layers be equally thick. Add a little salt and pepper, and some little pieces of butter, then put the tin in the hot oven (300°). When the butter on top is melted, take the pan from the oven, add slices of ham and serve hot.
