Zeppoles for an aperitif with friends

Today, with the arrival of sunny days and the desire to get together with friends, I have a salty Zeppole recipe for you for an aperitif, but in my own way. Normally Zeppoles are a kind of salty or sweet Italian donut. My secret to making my donuts tasty is the potato.

Ingredients:

  • 500g potato
  • 2 eggs
  • 7g of dry yeast
  • 80ml of milk
  • 500g flour
  • Anchovies or pitted olives for the stuffing
  • Salt
  • frying oil

Preparation:

  1. Boil the potatoes and mash them once cooled
  2. Add the eggs, yeast, milk, salt and flour.
  3. Knead until you obtain a smooth dough (the more the dough is moist, the softer the Zeppoles will be) it’s up to you to add milk or flour to obtain the desired consistency.
  4. Cover with a tea towel and let it rest for 2 hours until it doubles in size.
  5. Stuff them with anchovies, olives or both (or whatever you want I also do with slices of sausage with herbs) then fry them in the deep fryer for 3 to 4 min.

Enjoy your meal.
