  • 450-500 grams of wheat flour
  • 250 milliliters of beer
  • 50 milliliters of olive oil
  • 20 grams of fresh yeast
  • 1 teaspoon of sugar

Chop the onions and the garlic and mix with the meat, adding also the other ingredients.

 Divide the dough in equal parts (13-15), and spread each part on the table.

In the middle add some meat mixture.

 Fold the dough around the meat and return the ball upside down.

In a oven pan add some olive oil and put the meat buns.
Let them rest in a warm place for 30-40 minutes.

Put them in the oven at 170 degrees Celsius for 10 minutes, then cover the pan with an aluminum foil and let them cook for another 25-30 minutes.
You should eat them hot!

Traditional Sardinian sweets

This is what we discovered this time:

We highly recommend this confectionery "Loi & Figli" which is located in Via Caen in Olbia (exiting the town on Via Aldo Moro, take a left just before Hotel Demar).

Corsica Ferries review - Corsica Victoria

Although the ferry was big enough (not as big as the Moby ferries though) because it was a bit of a storm, we had a rough journey, but all is well when it ends well.

The ferry had 2 big common areas (bar and self-service restaurant) and a small playing area for children.

The food was good and not too salty, with prices ranging from 8 euro (for pasta) to 11 euro (for a main dish).

Homemade condensed milk - recipe (including photos)

  • 250 grams of powdered sugar
  • 200 milliliters of milk
  • 25 grams of butter

Put all the ingredients from above in a pot and put it at slow fire (my electric cooking plate was set at level 3 out of 9).

When the butter and sugar are melted, increase the heat a bit (I set it at level 5) and let it boil.

When it starts boiling let it another 10 minutes mixing continuously. 

Cool the composition by placing it in a cold place while mixing continuously.

It can be kept in a jar (I kept it for 2 weeks ) in the refrigerator and use it when its needed.
