Sicilian rolls the tasty meat skewers Quick and easy recipe
Sicilian rolls the tasty meat skewers: in Palermo they are called meat “Spitini”, they are meat rolls (generally veal), stuffed with a rich and tasty breading, cooking can be oven or grilled / embers. I use the oven for convenience. They are delicious and quick to prepare.
Ingredients for 6 skewers
- 6 slices of veal (to be cut into 3 parts)
- 60 gr of Ragusano cheese (or other aged cheese)
- 1 red onion
- 1 white onion
- 20 gr of pine nuts
- 20 gr of Raisins ("passoline")
- 100 gr of Grated Bread
- Bay leaves
- Salt, Pepper and Oil
How to make Sicilian rolls
We put thesultanas in a container with water to soften it. We prepare the breading that will be the filling of the rolls: let the breadcrumbs for 1 minute and keep aside. In a pan we put 2 tablespoons of oil and a half white onion cut into cubes, we fry until golden brown.
Put the toasted breadcrumbs, the browned onion, i Pine nuts, soaked and squeezed sultanas, the ragusano cheese grated (or other aged cheese), the parsley, salt, pepper and a generous spin of oil. We mix everything. The consistency must be moist (which can compact easily).
We beat the slices of meat to make them thinner, and cut them into 3 triangles. We make the slices with the breading and close them in rolls.We stick the rolls with a stick for skewers previously wet with water, for each skewer we put 3 rolls. We alternate the rolls with a bay leaf and a sheet of red onion. Continue like this until all the ingredients are used up.Grease the skewers with oil and then pass them in breadcrumbs (the same as the filling or plain)
In the oven at 180 degrees for 20 minutes.
