Peel potatoes, rinse and halve. Cook in salted water for 25-30 minutes.


Rinse parsley, shake dry and chop. Peel and chop onions. Cut bacon into cubes. Heat pan and cook bacon until golden brown. Add onions and marjoram and saute on medium heat for a few minutes. Rinse and quarter apples, core and slice 2 apples, dice remaining apples. Drizzle apples with lemon juice. Mix apple cubes with bacon, onions, 1 egg, parsley and ground almonds.


Separate 2 eggs ( use egg whites otherwise). Drain potatoes, evaporate slightly and press through the ricer. Mix with 30 grams (approximately 1 ounce) of flour and egg yolks, season with salt, pepper and freshly grated nutmeg. Roll out into 2 cm (approximately 1 inch) rolls, cover and refrigerate.


Rinse cabbage and cut into bite-sized pieces. Rinse beef fillet under cold water, pat dry, season with salt and pepper.
