What You Need:

For the Potato Base:

  • 3 large potatoes (about 900 grams)
  • 300 grams of cheddar cheese, grated
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil (about 20 ml)
  • 4 grams of salt

For the Meat Filling:

  • 500 grams of ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil (about 20 ml)
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 3 green peppers, diced
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons tomato sauce (about 25 grams)
  • 1 teaspoon tomato paste (about 20 grams)
  • A dash each of paprika, black pepper, cumin, thyme, and salt to taste
  • 3-4 sprigs of parsley, chopped

Let’s Make It:

  1. Prepare the Potatoes:
    • Start by peeling and grating the potatoes. Squeeze out any excess water.
    • Mix the grated potatoes with salt and 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil. Spread this mixture onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper, creating a thin, even layer.
    • Bake in a preheated oven at 200°C (about 400°F) for 20-25 minutes, or until the edges start to turn golden.
  2. Cook the Meat Filling:
    • While the potatoes are baking, heat 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil in a pan. Add the chopped onion, green and red peppers, and minced garlic. Sauté until they start to soften.
    • Add the ground beef to the pan, breaking it apart with a spoon. Cook until it’s no longer pink.
    • Stir in the tomato sauce, tomato paste, and your chosen spices. Cook for a few more minutes until everything is well combined. Finish by stirring in the chopped parsley.
  3. Assemble the Roll:
    • Once the potato base is golden, remove it from the oven. Sprinkle the grated cheddar cheese over the hot potato layer. Then, evenly spread the meat filling on top.
    • Carefully roll up the potato layer from one end to the other, making sure the filling stays inside.
  4. Bake Again:
    • Place the roll back in the oven for another 10-15 minutes, or until the cheese inside has melted and the roll is firm.
  5. Serve:
    • Let the roll cool for a few minutes before slicing. Serve warm for a dinner that’s sure to make your neighbors jealous!

This Potato and Minced Meat Roll combines the comforting flavors of potatoes and cheese with a savory meat filling, all rolled up into one delicious dish. It’s easy to make and even easier to enjoy!
