Serve this pleasant and unusual entree with sprigs of watercress
dipped in a well-flavoured vinaigrette.

Cut three green cucumbers in half lengthwise. Scoop out and discard
the seeds, then hollow much of the cucumber flesh out to leave green
shells. Chop the flesh and put it on kitchen paper to drain. Mince
or chop finely 150 g smoked pork loin or ham and 35 g bacon. In a
bowl, combine this mince with the cucumber flesh, 150 g lean minced
beef, 20 g crushed garlic, 75 g chopped shallots, 50 g chopped
parsley, a generous tablespoon of chopped fresh tarragon, 1
tablespoon paprika and salt and pepper. Break two eggs into the bowl
and stir the mixture until well- blended. Use to stuff the cucumber
shells and bake the shells for 45 minutes in a preheated 200C oven.

Makes 6 servings.
