How to make the potato roll
First of all, boil the potatoes previously washed and cut in half with all the skin, in boiling water for 20 – 30 minutes, until soft.
Then Drain and mash in a bowl with a potato masher, taking care to obtain a firm and not watery mixture.
Let it cool for 15 minutes then add the egg, salt and parmesan. Mix together to obtain a creamy but compact mixture and let it cool aside for at least a couple of hours, to speed up you can leave the mixture in the fridge.
Finally spread the mixture on a sheet of baking paper, making a rectangle, flattening it with a sharp knife about 1 cm thick.
Then add the sliced ham and diced scamorza:
Finally roll up your roll starting from the smallest part:
When you arrive at the last piece, close the sides like a meatloaf, grease all your roll with a teaspoon of oil and seal it perfectly in baking paper (I pinned it to keep it tight, but you can also simply wrap it so that it does not open)
Finally, bake in a hot static oven at 180 ° for about 30 minutes in the central part. After the indicated time, take it out of the oven and let it cool for at least 20 minutes.
Then open the baking paper gently, shape it quickly on the sides to give it back its shape, sprinkle with oil on the surface, add the rosemary and leave to brown for another 15 minutes in a hot oven!
Your Potato Roll is ready! racy and exquisite!
You can keep it in the fridge either raw, already wrapped and sealed for 2 – 3 days, Freeze it or keep it cooked at room temperature for 1 day or in the fridge for 2 – 3 days!
