Potato Roll

I love trying new recipes so when my sister Wendy sent me a recipe for ‘Potato Roll’ I could not resist testing it out. It has all the ingredients that my family loves and it is quite simple to put together. Very versatile, add in your family’s favorite vegetables and cheeses. In this ‘test’ I used  ‘Gardein ground round’(found in the freezer section) a great vegetarian substitute for ground beef. You can use any of your favorite beans such as black or kidney beans, or use your favorite vegetarian protein.
This makes a beautiful meal for special occasions or for any weeknight meal.
Serve with a green salad and your choice of dressing. So here you are Wendy, family and friends, another successful recipe tried and tested by this  kootenaigirl.

Potato Roll

The ingredients you will need.

Spinach is being wilted down and garlic added.

Onions are sautéed and ready for the ground round.

The  ground round is sautéed until browned.

Add in the tomatoes and seasonings.

Add in the parsley and set aside.

Parmesan cheese is sprinkled on the parchment paper and topped with slices of potatoes.
More Parmesan cheese is sprinkled over top of the potato slices.
The potatoes are then baked and ready for the toppings.

The spinach and cheese mixture is layered over the baked potatoes then topped with the ground round/tomato mixture.

Everything is rolled up and ready for the oven.

I rolled the whole thing with the parchment paper it was sitting on then sliced the parchment open before placing into the oven to be baked another 15 minutes.

Potato Roll after the final bake. Smells so good and it tasted amazing!
