Potato Log (M/P, TNT)
Source: My friend Sophie who is a great cook
Yield: 4 logs (approximately 24 pieces)

2 packages puff pastry dough (2 leaves per package) if frozen bring to room temperature
5 large potatoes
2 large onions, very finely chopped
2 bunches green onions, finely chopped
1 egg
Salt and pepper
2 tsp. chicken soup powder mix (optional but I do use it)
sesame seed to sprinkle
egg wash

Boil & mash the potatoes and cool.

Fry white onions in some oil until soft. Then add the green onions & fry a bit longer.

Add the onions to the mashed potatoes. Add the egg, salt and pepper & the chicken soup powder.

Roll the puff pastry dough into a rectangle about 14" long & 10" wide.

Place potato filling (about 2" wide & 1" high) along one edge of the dough. Fold edge of dough over the potatoes and roll into a long roll. Tuck under the ends.

Place on sprayed cookie sheet. Brush with a little egg wash & sprinkle with sesame seeds. Score the top of the dough in several places.

Bake at 400°F until golden brown. Slice on the diagonal.

If you wish to freeze them this can be done when they are raw. Thaw and then put on the egg wash and sesame seed before baking.

Poster's Notes: This potato recipe is very much like burekas but much easier to make. I always have them in the freezer for use when needed.
