The gratinated salted sticks are an ideal recipe for spontaneous visitors or to use leftovers!
For this, first hard boil the eggs. Rinse cold, peel and chop finely. Finely chop the ham and the pickled gherkins as well. Cut the salt sticks lengthwise and scoop out the inside (best done with a small spoon).
Mix the ham, eggs, pickles and the inside of the sticks with the mustard and sour cream. Season with salt and pepper.
Fill the Salzstangerl with the mixture, sprinkle with enough cheese and bake in the preheated oven at 180 to 200 degrees (convection oven) for about 10 minutes. Serve the ready baked Salzstangerl still warm.
