While I am on the topic about my passion for Cuban food this was an idea I got for a special for the restaurant at my school. It’s a Cuban stuffed potato which simply is a mashed potato wrapped around traditional Cuban beef, breaded and fried. I took a little spin with the actually potato with an Italian twist by using ground lamb instead of beef and adding basil, oregano, and garlic in the mix. The Potato is layed on a bed of vegable mix of choyote, heirloom tomatos, carmalized onions in a white wine butter sauce. The potato itself could hold up as a very delicious snack or appetizer but with the bed of veggies adds more depth to the flavor of the lamb and brings some sweet and sour to the party.
