Today I bring you this easy recipe of cannelloni stuffed with meat and foie gras. It is the recipe that my mother prepares every year at the new year meal. Probably few mothers prepared a dinner of end of year, and the next day a meal that is not based on leftovers from the previous day, but on a different menu: soup picadillo, cannelloni stuffed with meat and liver and biscuit glace with hot chocolate (a kind of homemade custard with hot chocolate sauce ice cream) for dessert.

I have always loved raising me the day of new year and hear the concert of Vienna while I fix it for new year meal. A habit that I love and a family tradition that the table stretches almost up to the dinner.

This recipe today's cannelloni stuffed with meat and foie gras again in addition many times throughout the year because I love. They are a soft and very tasty cannelloni that like everyone at home, so although they are a little laborious are easy to prepare and are worth. When I prepare them always I do twice the amount of the ingredients because I prefer to make them and freeze them. There are great, and so hit me the whim when we will, because I just have to thaw them and to the table!

  1. I leave you with the recipe video and the recipe explained step by step below.

  • 300 g of pork ham
  • 300 g of veal
  • 300 g of duck foie gras (also you serves mousse of foie gras of duck or your favorite pate of pork or beef, but my favorite is the duck which is what my mother used)
