In this recipe we used the egg completely, using the yolks for the mayonnaise and the egg whites to bread the cardoncelli. The breading can be made with blended carasau bread, particularly crunchy, but also with leftover bread or breadsticks
- 200 g seed oil
- 100 g carasau bread
- 6 clean cardoncelli mushrooms
- 4 eggs
- 1/2 friggitello pepper
- extra virgin olive oil
For the recipe some cardoncelli breaded with herb mayonnaise, blend the carasau bread in the cutter. If you like, you can flavor it with a small piece of minced garlic and a few leaves of parsley, a combination of flavors characteristic of mushrooms. We preferred to leave it neutral.
Separate the yolks from the egg whites and beat them lightly with a pinch of salt.
Cut halve the cardoncelli, pass them in the egg white, then in the chopped carasau. Place them on a baking tray, grease them with a drizzle of oil and bake them at 200 ° C for about 30-35 minutes.
Prepare meanwhile, the herb mayonnaise: whip the egg yolks with 1 tablespoon of lime juice, pouring the seed oil slowly. Finally, adjust the taste by adding salt and lime juice.
Complete the sauce by combining 1 tablespoon of chopped chives, the finely chopped pepper and 1 tablespoon of chopped dill.
Serve cardoncelli with this sauce.
To know: very firm and delicate, cardoncelli, typical of Puglia and Basilicata, are also grown and are always available. The herb mayonnaise is our interpretation of the tartar sauce with chives, friggitello and dill that replace onion, gherkins and parsley.
