Potato strudel

by | Sep 25, 2020 | Breads, buns & biscuits

We can call these rolls the poor men’s strudel because in lean years when poppy seeds and walnuts were not avaible or people couldn’t afford them, potato was the cheapest choice to have strudel.

This strudel is filled with – despite expectations – a sweet mixture of mashed potatoes, eggs, sugar and vanilla, which is topped with some sour cream before rolling up.

You can save some work by using a store-bought phyllo dough instead of making your own strudel dough. If you decide on homemade dough, you can use this recipe, just decrease the quantities to about one-third of the original amounts.

Hungarian cottage cheese

This is what Hungarian túró looks like

You often ask me what kind of cottage cheese (or curd cheese or farmer's cheese - call it what you want) I use in the recipes. In Hungary the store-bought cottage cheese is dry and crumbly as you can see in the picture. So if a recipe calls for túró, I mean this type. If you can't obtain túró, you can try to make your own from whole milk. Click on the link below.

Metric system vs cup

In Hungary metric units are in use, all the recipes on this website are based on this system, so a kitchen scale is necessary. Since I’m not familiar with cup as a measurement unit, I convert grams to cups by using an online converter. The values in brackets, therefore, are only approximate volumes, so, please, double-check them before you start cooking.
