    These flat and round shaped gnocchi, made with semolina instead of potato, are delicious and must be served super hot! Once tried, you will be addicted to them!

    Serves: 4 

    • 1L milk
    • 1 pinch salt
    • 250g semolina
    • 3 egg yolks
    • 1 pinch nutmeg
    • 1 spoon Parmesan cheese
    • 5 knobs of butter

    Prep:20min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. Combine the milk and salt. Bring to the boil. Pour in the semolina gradually and stir for 3 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.
    2. Add the yolks, the nutmeg and the cheese to the milk mixture. Stir well.
    3. Pour the mixture onto a wet baking tray or swiss roll tin and level with a rolling pin to a thickness of 2cm.
    4. Using a 2 to 3 inch round cutter, or the bottom of a glass, cut round disks out of the mixture. Dip the cutter in cold water to prevent sticking.
    5. Place gnocchi in a baking pan greased with butter. Scatter the knobs of butter over top.
    6. Bake at 200 C / Gas 6 for 7 to 8 minutes, then grill for another 7 to 8 minutes and serve.
