<<< We had something very similar to what you described in Swedish food (Sweden
ruled Estonia and Latvia and Lituany under many years), it's called
"kroppkakor". It's made with potatos, as a kind of big Italian gnocchi or
dumpling. It's filled with ground meat and it taste wonderful.
I'm assuming that this recipe is likely post-period (later than 1600 CE) since it includes potatoes. Although they were known in Spain, I doubt they were known as far away as Estonia. Or is this actually an older recipe that used something other than potatoes originally?
