A total taste sensation! If you have never tried the pork and apple combo, now is the time to do it. Believe me, you’ve been missing out!
This recipe comes courtesy of a book I have called The Complete Book of Main Courses.
Here is what you will need to make enough for 2 people. (Easily doubled)
- 1 Potato, medium size
- 1 Cooking Apple
- 1 Garlic clove
- 1 Egg
- 2 Prosciutto slices
- 2 Pork Escalopes
- 2-4 Fresh Sage leaves
- 2 knobs of Butter
First up, preheat your oven to 200°C.
Next, you need to prep your ingredients.
Cut the cooking apple in half. Cut one half into 8 wedges and peel the other. Then finely chop the garlic & peel the potato.
Grate the potato & the peeled half of the apple into a bowl. Now you need to squeeze as much of the liquid as possible out of the mixture.
When you have done that beat the egg and add HALF to the grated mixture along with the garlic and salt & pepper to taste. (if you are doubling the recipe, use the whole egg.)
Spoon the mixture into two on a baking sheet that has been lined with foil & greased. (I used a low calorie spray oil) Flatten & round with a spoon. Add 6 of the apple wedges to the tray too. (If you don’t want them quite so well cooked, add the apple when you add the pork later.) If you like, drizzle with a little olive oil at this point.
Put them into the middle of the oven for 10 minutes.
Whilst they are cooking, lay the prosciutto slices on a board & put the pork escalopes on top. Add a slice of apple, 1 or 2 fresh sage leaves & a knob of butter to the middle & roll them up. Ensure that the prosciutto completely covers the outside.
After the 10 minutes, take out the rostis and lay the pork rolls on top of them. Turn the apple slices too. (or add them if you didn’t want them as well cooked.) Put back into the oven for about 20 minutes.
This golden deliciousness is what comes out. I cannot convey just how yummy this was. If you get a piece of every component on your fork and bite, it’s like an explosion goes off in your mouth!
Best of all, it clocks in at a lowly 425 calories per serving. Which is very surprising considering how tasty this little beaut is!
Hope you all enjoy your weekend!
I’ll be back next week with a post on a surprise birthday treat for my Dad.
(Can’t say now as it’s not his birthday yet, so ssshh!)
