Paupiettes in Autumn

I haven't bored you with a recipe in a while, so I do it again. This time it's for chestnut stuffed paupiettes with mashed pumpkin and potatoes on the side.

I asked my butcher to cut me some thin slices of beef and Toño brought me some roasted chestnuts he got from a street vendor. The slices of beef we smeared with mustard, added a slice of ham, thinly sliced leek and onions, topped it with rough crumbs of chestnut, and seasoned with salt and pepper. Seas Everything was rolled to nice paupiettes.

The paupiettes were briefly fried and then removed, the remains in the pan were used to make the sauce with flour, white wine, beef stock, thyme and rosemary. When the sauce was boiling, the paupiettes and the remaining stuffing was added again and braised for 50 minutes.

For the mashed potatoes, we replaced a third of the mass by pumpkins, which we processed together with the potatoes.

Interessant, vor allem die Idee mit dem Kürbis.

Quite tasty. :-) I've made roulades before, but never seen this variant. :-)

Mashed pumpkin and tatters sound lovely!

And you didn't get tummy ache? It must have been good then!

But what is it about pumpkins? Seeing them all over those American blogs is one thing but having them pop up in a European one is really a bit much!

You'll be serving us grits next!

Sounds very good. The bit of ham that shows in the first picture looks like what we call bacon in the states. But in Canada, bacon is something different, with very little visible fat.
