For this recipe, you need 4 stainless steel 4 cm/1.5 inch wide and 6 cm/2.3 inch high cylinders available from any restaurant supply store.
1 good quality alheira
150 g/5.2 oz of tender, cooked broccoli
1 garlic clove
4 quail eggs
1 glass of white GRAND' ARTE Arinto or PAXIS Arinto
2 tablespoons of olive oil
Salt and pepper
8 basil leaves to garnish
Peel off the alheira skin, cut and place into the 4 cylinders:
press, remove and sear lightly on either side. Then, place the sausage back into the tubes and sauté the broccoli in the alheira skillet with the garlic, wine and seasoning, mashing gently with a fork until the mixture looks like coarse mashed potatoes. Then, insert into the tubes, smooth the surface and set the quail eggs on top before baking for ten minutes in an oven preheated to 200ºC/392ºF. Remove and garnish with basil.
