Welcome

Welcome in my blog !
First let me tell you that, as it is the translation of a French blog, I use the metric system for my measurements and all the temperatures are given in Celsius !

New category: I tasted it for you. The idea is to pick up random products that are unknow to me, to taste them, cook them, describe them and give my opinion on them.

Enjoy !

Stuffed tomatoes (and potatoes) with mince meat

Français.
This is a nice recipe, it is not only easy to prepare but has also a nice presentation. It is a typical recipe in France, and it is always successful!


Ingredients (for 4 people)
Tomatoes (1 or 2 per person, depending on the size)
400g mince meat
1 onion
1 egg
Dry bread
5-10cl milk
Mixed herbs, or tarragon, parsley,
Paprika
To go with it
Stuffed potatoes or rice

Preparation
Prepare the stuffing: in a large bowl, bring together some crumbled bread and the milk. Add mixed herbs, salt and pepper, the chopped onion and the egg. Crumble the meat and mix.
Cut the top of the potatoes, then remove the tomato pulp with a teaspoon (careful not to pierce the bottom of the tomato). Put the pulp in the sauce pan you will use, it will make a sauce. Stuff the tomatoes with the meat, put the top back and place them in the saucepan. Add some water (in the saucepan, but not directly on the tomatoes) so that t won’t burn (you can also add some more water anytime during the cooking process if necessary). Put some salt on the tomatoes. You can also put some paprika in the water to colour it!
Cover and cook for about 30 min. Check regularly to prevent the dish from burning.

To serve with the dish, you can also stuff potatoes the same way. In that case, count 1 tomato and 1 potato per person. Or you can serve it with rice. In that case, make sure there is water in the saucepan, so you can have a sauce for the rice.

Bon appétit!!!
