These stuffed potatoes make a great entree or side dish. Sweet potatoes are cooked to the perfect texture and removed from their skin. The skins are later stuffed with a potato, cod, and kale mixture, topped with mozzarella, and baked to perfection.
- 7 sweet potatoes (medium, cut in half)
- 3 eggs
- 1 onion (small)
- 4 garlic cloves
- 5 coriander (sprigs)
- 500 grams cod (desalted, skinned, deboned, and defrosted)
- 4 cabbage leaves (large Savoy, cut in thin strips)
- 20 pitted black olives (cut in 4 pieces each)
- 200 milliliters cream (herbal cooking, Parmalat)
- 100 grams mozzarella cheese
- Cook sweet potatoes and eggs in a saucepan with salted water.
- Once the potatoes are cooked, remove from heat, and drain. Cool.
- Peel the eggs, chop, and set aside.
- Use sharp knife to cut potato out of skin. Place the skins in an ovenproof container, and set aside. Cut the potato in small pieces, and set aside as well.
- Heat a large skillet with a little bit of olive oil over medium heat. Add onion, garlic cloves, and coriander. When onion begins to brown, add the shredded cod and the kale. Cook for about 5 minutes. Adjust the seasoning, add the olives and potatoes, and mix.
- Add the cream, and mix everything well. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes, and remove from heat.
- Spoon mixture into potato skins. Sprinkle each one with chopped egg and a little mozzarella cheese.
- Bake to gratin.

I do not like cooked pears. Whenever I have had them, they seem slimy in one regard and gritty in another however, served in this syrup with a side of custard really made a difference. The two textures came together elevating the simple pear!
