  • 3 potatoes (700 grams/24.7 oz), peeled and thinly sliced
  • 700 grams (24.7 oz) cabbage, finely chopped
  • 200 grams (7 oz) cheese, grated
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • A bunch of spring onions, chopped
  • 100 grams (3.5 oz) bacon (optional), chopped
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • Sunflower oil, for frying


  1. Prepare the Filling:
    • In a large skillet, heat a little sunflower oil over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and grated carrot, and sauté until softened.
    • If using bacon, add it to the skillet and cook until crispy.
    • Add the chopped cabbage to the skillet, seasoning with salt and pepper. Cook until the cabbage is tender and slightly caramelized. Remove from heat and let it cool slightly.
    • Stir in the chopped spring onions and grated cheese into the cabbage mixture. Set aside.
  2. Assemble the Potato Rolls:
    • Lay out the potato slices on a clean surface. You may slightly overlap them to form a base for the rolls.
    • Place a portion of the cabbage and cheese filling on one end of the potato layer.
    • Carefully roll up the potatoes around the filling, securing with a toothpick if necessary.
  3. Cook the Potato Rolls:
    • Heat sunflower oil in a large frying pan over medium heat.
    • Place the potato rolls seam-side down in the pan. Cook until the potatoes are golden brown on all sides and cooked through, turning carefully to ensure even cooking.
  4. Serve:
    • Once cooked, remove the potato rolls from the pan and place them on a paper towel to drain any excess oil.
    • Serve warm, with a side of sour cream or your favorite sauce for dipping.
