- Chop the mortadella and emmental and process slightly to make a semi solid paste.
- Heat oven to 200 degrees c or 400 degreec f.
- Cut the dough into 24 pieces and flatten with the palm of your hand or a rolling pin to form a circle about 6 inches across.
- Fill half of with tomato filling and half with mortadella filling. Hold in the palm of your hand and pinch the dough to close in the filling.
- Place seam side down in two buttered 23cm circular tins or use aluminium ones if you are going to freeze them for future use.

- Let the balls rise and use the last egg yolk to glaze the balls.
