Potato Rollups

Potato Rollups
This is one of my "California meets Turkey" recipes. Boiled, mashed potatoes are used as filling for many Turkish savory pastries along with cheese and olive based fillings. I wanted to serve bite size appetizers with potato filling. Cream cheese and turkey rollups that are common on party platters in California came to my mind. I combined the tortilla rollup idea with the flavor of  Turkish potato salad (see recipe in my blog) and came up with this appetizer that I believe you'll like. You can serve these as party appetizers or with afternoon tea. Enjoy!

  • 2 medium potatoes, boiled, mashed 
  • 3 large tortillas
  • 2 green onions, finely chopped
  • ½ cup fresh mint, finely chopped
  • ½ cup fresh dill, finely chopped
  • ½ cup fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon chili pepper (optional)
  • Salt to taste

Boil potatoes, peel them and mash them with a fork. Put tortillas aside. Mix chopped green ingredients in a large bowl. Save aside 2 tablespoons of the mixture to be used as garnish. Add potatoes, olive oil, peppers and salt into the large bowl. Mix them with a fork. Place a tortilla on a flat surface. Spread 1/3 of the potato mixture evenly on the tortilla. Starting at the bottom, roll it into a cylinder. Cut the edges. Cut the roll into ¼ inch slices. Place the slices on a serving dish on their flat sides. Repeat for the other 2 tortillas. Sprinkle with chopped herbs.

Afiyet Olsun! Bon Appetit!
