To make the filling, chop the garlic clove and wash the salted anchovies well.

Put 4 tablespoons of breadcrumbs, egg yolk, chopped garlic clove, a pinch of oregano, desalted anchovies and grated pecorino cheese in a bowl, mix well and add, if necessary, a little milk.

Open the anchovies in 2 parts and stuff them with the mixture, then close them by putting another anchovy cut into 2 parts on top.
