Ingredients to make potato wrap:
How to make potato wrap:
Hydrate the dried tomatoes in hot water. Wash and prick the potato to cook it with its skin in the microwave for 6 minutes. After that time, turn it over and cook it for 6 more minutes.
Trick: If you do not have a microwave, cook it with its skin in boiling water until you feel that it is soft when you prick it. This way, it will absorb less water than if you peeled it and boiled it in cubes.
Careful not to burn you, peel the potato. If there is any piece of skin left, do not worry because you have previously washed it and it will be a more rustic puree. So that, crush it and season it to taste.
When the taste of the puree is to your liking, let it warm up a little and add the egg. Mix and reserve to continue with the potato roll recipe.
Cover the table with plastic wrap and distribute the puree on it, forming a 2cm tall rectangle.
Add the dried tomatoes previously hydrated, place on them the ham and finally, the cheese. You can make the potato wrap with the cheese that you like the most, while it is sliced. Similarly, if you want to make a vegetarian potato wrap, simply remove the ham and replace it with another ingredient, such as spinach.
Start to roll your potato roll with the help of plastic wrap to press.
Trick: preheat the oven to 180ºC.
Close the ends of the plastic wrap like candy and place the potato wrap on a baking sheet. Bake it for about 15 minutes.
Serve by opening the film being careful not to burn yourself. You can cover it with a green sauce and cut it into slices about 2 fingers wide so it doesn’t fall apart. Accompany your potato, ham and cheese roll with a fresh green leafy salad or a caprese salad.
