Savory Cannoli Recipe For National Cannoli Day

June 16th is National Cannoli Day. Cannoli (singular, cannolo) are one of our favorite desserts: crunchy, soft, and sweet. But what if there were savory cannoli? Filled with truffled mashed potatoes, for example, instead of sweetened ricotta cheese?

You can serve these savory cannoli (photo #1) as a first course with salad or as a side with the main course.

The recipe was created by Executive Chef Martin Wolf of The Culinary Institute of the Carolinas at Greenville Technical College.

They are definitely finger food: The crunchy shell will crack if subjected to a knife and fork.

You can buy cannoli shells (tubes) at many Italian bakeries. If not, here’s a recipe to make your own.

Ingredients For 4 Servings

  • 1 pound mashed Idaho® potatoes
  • 4 ounces Parmesan cheese
  • 2 ounces butter
  • 1 tablespoon white truffle oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • Cannoli tubes, bought or homemade
  • Garnish options: bacon, watercress salad or gourmet greens, serrano ham, pickled red onions, your own idea

    1. MIX the mashed potatoes with truffle oil, butter, and salt. Add to a pastry bag.

    2. HEAT a small nonstick skillet to very hot. Scatter the Parmesan, cook until browned, and roll around the cannoli tubes, one at a time, to coat in the Parmesan. Use about one ounce of Parmesan for each cannolo.

    3. FILL the cannoli tubes with the truffled mashed potatoes. Plate each one with a garnish of choice.
