2 medium-sized cucumbers, peeled, halved lengthwise, and seeded
2 tbsp butter
4 slices of bacon
1/2 cup dry white wine
10 oz. ground beef
3 tbsp fresh bread crumbs, soaked in a little milk
1 medium-sized onion, chopped
3 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
Salt and pepper
Make the stuffing by mixing together the ground beef, breadcrumbs, egg, onion, parsley and seasoning. Fill each of the cucumber halves with this mixture, then put the halves together again and tie them with cotton thread so they resemble whole cucumbers.
Butter a baking dish and put the cucumbers into it. Cover each cucumber with two slices of bacon. Cook in a moderate oven, preheated to 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until the cucumbers are tender and translucent. Serve he stuffed cucumbers with a potato puree.
