Stuffed potatoes

This is a peruvian recipe that I love. I don't like when food is too spicy so I reduced the quantities. It's sticky and leave your hands dirty but it's totally worth it!

  • 5 large potatoes
  • 500g of beef minced
  • 1 onion
  • 1 handfull of minced parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon of curry
  • 1/2 teaspoon of paprika
  • Salt & pepper
  • Flour
  • 1 egg
  • Breadcrumbs

  1. Cook the potatoes untill they are very soft, drain, peel and smash them.
  2. While you are doing that, cook the beef minced and the onion (cut in little squares) in a pan with a little bit of butter/oil it depends on what you prefer. Add the paprika, salt and pepper and keep it on the side.
  3. In the mash potatoes, add the parsley (very thin minced), curry, salt and pepper. Mix it together. Then, make a ball of mash in your hand (big as a handfull), make a hole in the middle and stuff it with the beef minced preparation. Close it and squeeze it softly as I show you on the pictures. Put flour on it and repeat untill you run out of stock!
  4. Heat your pan with vegetable oil. In a plate,  pour the beat egg and in another one the breadcrumbs. Dip the ball on the egg and breadcrumbs and cook until both sides are light brown/gold.
  5. Serve with a salad.

For Valentine's day, we decided not to go in a busy restaurant or to buy presents but to have a horror movies night (concession from me!) and to eat junk food! The recipe coming is very sweet and rich: do not eat too much and brush your teeth twice after it !


  • 1 bag of microwave pop corn
  • 1 cup of salted butter
  • 2 cup of brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup of maple syrup
  • 3 snickers

  1. In a pot, melt the butter and brown sugar together.
  2. Then add the mapple syrup (you can replace it by corn syrup) et the snickers slice.
  3. Let it melt on a not too hot pot. 'Cook' the pop corn: follow the indications on the box.
  4. Put it in a large bowl and pour the sauce on the top. I recommend you use a spoon to eat it!

Just to show you that i'm the only person that can fail microwave pop corn!!
