This rosemary potato strudel recipe is a great potato recipe for Easter. Thin sliced potatoes coated with sour cream and seasoned with rosemary, chives and garlic are nestled and baked steamy in a golden puff pastry.
I’m usually not one of those bloggers who is organized enough to cook, create and blog about a holiday recipe in time to capture the Google traffic looking for ideas. But last weekend found us snowed in with a foot of snow swirling about and I was able to make this potato strudel recipe that I’ve had my eye on for sometime. It seems like a perfect dish for the upcoming Easter meal and for once I’m not blogging in arrears.
I was a little apprehensive, after all there is dough involved and you know my doughaphobia, but I’ve used frozen puff pastry before and so I decided to charge right in with ears tucked back. And as far as I’m concerned, there’s never enough potato recipes to experiment with, and this one turned out delicious.
Just thaw a box of puff pastry sheets. Lay them out end to end and press them together with damp fingers to seal the seams. Using your mandolin, slice the potatoes and in a large bowl mix them with the sour cream and seasonings. Starting at one end of the dough, pile up the potatoes and then take the close end of the dough and drape over the potatoes just to cover them. About half of the remaining dough is left exposed. With sizzors cut the exposed dough into strips at an angle.
Wrap the strips over the packet of potatoes, seal all edges and then coat with a milk and egg mixture for a nice golden crust.
Pop it into the oven for this bundle of potato joy.
With a serrated knife, slice and serve.
