Ingredients:

50 g Butter
1 Tablespoon of sugar
100 g of water
1 Pinch of fine salt
For the hazelnut cream
500 ml of Milk
6 Yellow eggs
50 g of hazelnut paste
200 g of sugar

PREPARATION

For the bignè
1

First of all dedicate yourself to the bignè preparation: in order to prepare the choux pastry, pour some water, some milk, some sugar and salt in a pan. Then add the butter cut into cubes and boil everything. At this point, add the flour at once and mix well with a wooden spoon. In order to avoid the creation of lumps, mix rapidly and cook the roux until a white patina appears on the bottom of the pan.

2

Transfer the obtained mixture in a bowl and add an egg per time mixing it with a spoon in order to incorporate it. At the beginning, the mixture will appear separated, but continue to mix it. Only when the egg will be completely absorbed, you can add the next one. Once added all the eggs, you will obtain a smooth and solid dough.

3

Now transfer it in a pastry bag. Take a baking tray and line it with baking paper. Take the pastry bag and start filling the tray, by squeezing some mixture and forming little dough balls well-spaced and walnut-sized.

4

Once filled the tray, with a wet spoon, press gently the balls surface, so that you can create the tip of the bignè. Subsequently, whisk a yellow egg with some water in a little bowl and use the mixture to brush the bignè surface. Warm up the oven in fan mode at 220°C. Once hot, lower the temperature to 180°C and bake your bignè. Cook for about 20-25 minutes. Take your bignè out and let them cool before using them.

For the cream
5

To prepare the cream: in a little pan bring to boil some milk with a vanilla bean. In a bowl, instead, mix sugar, flour and stracchino cheese. Subsequently add the yellow eggs and mix everything well. Once the milk has started boiling, pour in the mixture of the bowl; mix everything by using a whisk until the cream gets thickened.

6

Once your cream is ready, add the hazelnut paste and let it rest by cooling it down.

7

At this point take your bignè and come the cream out of the fridge, pour it in a sac à poche and start filling every single bignè by making a little hole in the bottom. Your bignè with hazelnut cream are ready to be served.

Second courses

“Quattro formaggi” aubergines

Author: Guido Boschetti

Difficulty:

Beginner

Total time:

50 min

Servings:

1 Portions

Ingredients:

4 Aubergines
200 g of Tipico IT’s Mozzarella Fior di Latte
120 g of Tipico IT’s Gorgonzola dolce
160 g of Tipico IT’s Stracchino
60 g of Tipico IT’s Grana Padano
Tipico IT’s Extra virgin olive oil
Salt
Pepper

PREPARATION

1

Firstly, start with the preparation of the aubergines: cut them in half and with the help of a knife, start digging them to obtain a surface to fill in.

2

Keep the extracted pulp aside for the preparation of the filling. At this point, sprinkle your aubergines with salt and extra virgin olive oil and bake them in the preheated oven at 180°C for about 20 minutes.

3

Meanwhile, prepare the filling: firstly, retake the extracted pulp from the aubergines, reduce them into little cubes and start cooking them in a large pan with a trickle of olive oil, salt and pepper.

4

Once the cubes are cooked, keep them aside so that they can cool down and prepare the cheese filling.

5

Take the mozzarella fior di latte and before reducing it into little cubes, drain it well so that it can lose the liquid in excess; cut the Gorgonzola into little pieces.

6

Now that your aubergines are ready, you can proceed with the filling: after having created a first layer of mozzarella, place down the little aubergine cubes, which in the meantime will have cooled down and finally finish with the other cheeses.

7

As last layer, sprinkle an abundant handful of grated Grana Padano. At this point, your filled aubergines are ready to be baked at 180°C for about 10-15 minutes. When the surface will be golden brown, take them off the oven and serve them hot, to taste their irresistible and stringy filling.
