  • Summary

    Simple street food from the markets of Palermo brought to our kitchen. If you can't find scamorza, any melting cheese is fine - fontina, Emmental etc. Serve with sweet chili sauce or my spicy tomato passata (ketchup). Add a salad, and you’ve a great snack lunch or supper for a meat-free day! Serves four large ‘burger’ size patties or 12-16 small balls or patties ideal as appetizers.
