Stick a skewer into a ball of meat before rolling it in the cheese. au gratin. Repeat the process for all the meat balls before setting them aside on a plate.

Separate the mashed potatoes in two and season one half of the puree with the paprika, then pour it into a freezer bag. Cut the corner of the freezer bag and pour the mashed potatoes (forming swirls) onto a ladle dipped in frying oil.

Place the crowns on the dish then place the meatballs in the center of the crowns. Sprinkle parsley and basil on top and enjoy!
