I am a potato lover and I can never get enough of them. When I go to a steakhouse I love to get a loaded baked potato overflowing with sour cream and chives. Can you imagine that in a spring roll? These potato spring rolls capture the great flavor of a baked potato with all the fixings and the addition of the spring roll wrapper turns them into a fun appetizer. These spring rolls make an amazing side with steak or your choice of meat, or if you are vegetarian, just add a nice green salad.
This is a very versatile recipe and a great blueprint for you to add other delicious ingredients. You can bake these or you can deep fry them and I guarantee that they are delicious both ways. What makes them really pop with flavor is a simple dipping sauce with sour cream and a hint of horseradish. If you like a little more spice, add a bit of wasabi powder or more cayenne.
Start with a pound of potatoes peeled and cut into large chunks
After they are fork tender mash and add the seasonings (complete instructions are at end of post)
Add 1 1/2 tablespoons potato to each spring roll wrapper
rolling the spring rolls is easy once you get started
