Don't hesitate to use leftover meats for this recipe, and even to mix different kinds, depending on what you have in the fridge.

If you're using pork, you can replace the oil with lard in step 2.

For a perfect match, use a Savoy cheese for the grated cheese if possible (Abondance, Beaufort, etc.).
Several days in the fridge, protected by cling film.
Home made.
