Kartoffelroulade, or Potato Roulade [Secret Recipe Club]

I have joined a club, a secret club. What kind of club, you ask, did I join that would warrant an announcement here?  Why, a cooking club, of course!  I joined The Secret Recipe Club last month, and am so glad I did.  Here's the rundown: Every month over 150 bloggers are assigned another blog to cook from.  We can cook any recipe on that blog.  The only rule is that we keep it a secret until reveal day--no one knows who has whom.  As of the posting time here, I still don't know who had my blog...I can't wait to see!

Secret Recipe Club

Anyway, I had Heidi's verden, which translates from Danish to "Heidi's World."  Heidi's blog was a perfect match for me--it's even written in Danish, so I had to use Google Translate to read her posts.  I love food from around the world and enjoy learning other languages, so I was excited to try something out that seemed particularly Danish.  I looked around her blog and finally settled on the Kartoffelroulade, or Potato Roulade (Roll). 

We served this with grilled burgers.  I made some minor changes to her recipe and have listed the quantities in American measurements here, but I kept the spirit of the recipe.  My husband and I really enjoyed this, although it does take some work to make.  She suggests grilling it, which I did on an indoor stovetop grill, but I may just try frying it up in a pan next time.  This makes 8 servings as a side, but I could imagine adding a little meat in there and serving it as a main course.  Thanks, Heidi, for this great recipe!

Kartoffelroulade (Potato Roulade)
from Heidi's verdern

2.2 pounds russet potato (about 5 medium potatoes), coarsely shredded
4 egg yolks
2 cups grated cheese (I used 1 cup sharp cheddar and 1 cup monterey jack.)
2 cloves garlic, minced
Salt and Pepper, to taste

2 cups frozen or fresh (leaves blanched) spinach, chopped
1 block cream cheese
2 roasted red peppers

Mix the potato, egg yolks, cheese, garlic and salt and pepper in a large bowl. Cover a cookie sheet or roasting pan with parchment paper. Spread the potato mixture in a square shape on the parchment paper, pressing firmly all around. Bake in a 430 degree F oven for about 30 minutes, or until the potato sheet is cooked through and lightly browned. Remove from the oven and cool.

Once the potatoes are cooled, spread the cream cheese all over the potatoes. Spread the spinach on top and then sprinkle the red peppers on top of the spinach. Using the parchment paper to help you, roll the potato tightly into a spiral. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate until you are ready to use. (Refrigerating it for a couple of hours or up to a day will help in slicing it later.)

When ready to serve, slice the roll into 1-to-2-inch slices. Spray a hot grill with olive oil or cooking spray and grill on each side until grill marks show, about 5 minutes on each side. Serve.

Oh wow - this looks amazing! I could eat potatoes for every meal, and I am always looking for something different, and these are beautiful!

Noelle @Opera Singer in the Kitchen August 29, 2011 at 9:42 AM  

I have to say wow as well because on top of translating you chose such a lovely recipe. YUM!

Stephanie August 29, 2011 at 11:06 AM  

What a lovely idea! I'd love to play with the idea using other root vegetables too. Imagine a sweet potato base with a tex-mex filling, or parsnips with a allspice/cloves/cinnamon farmer's cheese with spinach.

This is being added to my to-cook list!

heidi August 29, 2011 at 11:37 AM  

I am so happy that you liked the recipe - actually I am not sure if it is particularly Danish, but anyway, we eat a lot of potatoes in Denmark, so I guess there is a chance you would see it at restaurants as well :-)
I hope you didn't have too many problems with the language thing, but it looks like you did perfectly!

And of course you can heat it up in a pan, we just used the grill since we made it at a barbecue gathering. I'm sure the taste will be the same, and just as good!

This looks fantastic!

Thank goodness for Google and Google translation!

Mindy August 29, 2011 at 12:18 PM  

@Stephanie, what a great idea to use different root veggies...I especially like the idea of using sweet potatoes!

@Heidi, haha...I just assumed it was Danish since I'd never seen anything like it here or in my travels. :-)

Kimberly August 29, 2011 at 2:21 PM  

Wow ... this looks and sounds amazing! This will be added to my "to make" list ASAP!

Kudos to you for such a challenging SRC post. I would have been stressed to translate and adapt a foreign recipe but you did a wonderful job.

Manu August 29, 2011 at 8:05 PM  

Yum! This looks like a great side dish to me! I would love to have some! Great choice for the SRC!

Trisha August 29, 2011 at 10:34 PM  

This is a different side compared to the more frequently used potato salads, mash and fries. Your version looks lovely!

Unknown August 30, 2011 at 2:18 AM  

That's a stunning twist on the usual mashed potatoes.
