Grana Padano PDO on Broccoli Cream Ingredients
- Grana Padano PDO
- 2 Eggs
- Breadcrumbs 4 tbsp
- 1 clove of garlic
- 400 g of Broccoli
- Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Cut the Grana Padano DOP into little cubes and obtain 16 morsels, then wash the broccoli thoroughly and cut it into small pieces. Sauté it in a pan with a clove of unpeeled garlic add a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil and a sprinkling of salt and pepper.
Cook the broccoli in a pan for about 15 minutes, if necessary add half a glass of water to prevent it from drying out too much and at the end of cooking then blend it with an immersion blender to obtain a cream. Beat the eggs in a bowl and immerse the bites of Grana Padano PDO first in the eggs and then in the breadcrumbs. Once the cheese is covered, fry it in plenty of oil for a few minutes.
Now it’s time to prepare the aperitif by serving the morsels of cheese and placed on the broccoli cream.
