    Um Safia's Note:

    Here is the second of my Algerian bourek recipes. I have also posted a Chicken & Preserved Lemon Bourek recipe. This cheese & potato bourek is another of my family favourites & there never seem to be enough! You can use phyllo dough instead of the spring roll sheets. You can also add a few finely chopped olives in place of the gherkins. If you're not familiar with making bourek, have a look at the NA*ME Fourms Bourek Demo: http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?t=310912

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    bourek

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl, check for seasoning - adjust if required. Allow the mixed filling to cool if the mash is hot.
    2. 2
      Fill & roll your bourek as follows:.
    3. 3
      Lay 1 spring roll sheet on your work surface & place 2 generous teaspoonfulls of the filling onto the sheet. You need to place it in a line approx 1" up from the bottom of the sheet & the line of filling should have a fraction over 1" of spring roll sheet visable on both the left & right side.
    4. 4
      Next bring the left side of the sheet over the filling - it will overlap the filling by about an inch. Do the same with the right side.
    5. 5
      Take the bottom of the sheet in both hands & pull it up so that it covers the line of filling.
    6. 6
      With a pastry brush or the back of a teaspoon, brush a small amount of the flour paste along the edges of the sheet.
    7. 7
      Now start to roll the bourek, be careful to keep it tight & even. When you have rolled it up securely, you can brush a tiny amount of the paste along the seam so that the bourek stays closed whilst it is being fried.
    8. 8
      Repeat these steps with the remaining spring roll sheets.
    9. 9
      Now you can either freeze the bourek or fry them in a little oil. Cook over a medium heat in batches, in a large frying pan / skiller & fry until a deep golden colour on all sides - turning as required!

      Um Safia... Mmmm! My daughter and her friends love it when I make a batch of Potato and Cheese Perogies after a three hour dance class! I thought they would thoroughly enjoy your Cheese & Potato Bourek! I was so correct!!! They devoured these amazing Algerian Spring Rolls! I served them with individual little ramekins of Sour Cream... They all said that they were perfectly magical! Thanks for a devine recipe!
