Chef's notes

Nutritious note

Those hamburger versions are interesting, since it offers a variety of the same recipe. If you opt for the version with the leaf, garnish it with garnishings and close it over itself and fix it all with a toothpick. If you try the version with potato peel, garnish it with garnishings then add a meatball. Little tip: make your meatballs oval to fit it better inside the potato peel.
