Cook: 60 min.

Servings: 4


  • Potatoes (large) – 750 g (3 pcs.)
  • Hard cheese – 100 g
  • Ham – 200 g
  • Egg – 1 pc.
  • Mayonnaise (or sour cream) – 1 tbsp
  • Bread crumbs – 50 g
  • Salt to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper – a pinch
  • Butter – 20 g
  • Vegetable oil (for frying) – 50 g

You can use the mashed potatoes leftover from lunch or dinner. In this case, the cooking process will be significantly reduced.

  2. Cool the potatoes a little and peel. Add butter to the potatoes and mash with mashed potato. Then add the egg, salt, and pepper. Mix everything well.
  3. Grate the cheese on a medium grater, cut the ham into thin medium slices.
  4. In a deep bowl, combine cheese and ham, add mayonnaise for the bunch (you can do it without it or replace it with sour cream). Mix everything well.
  5. Pour bread crumbs onto a plate, put a tablespoon of mashed potatoes there, and smooth a little, giving the shape of a cake. Put a teaspoon of the filling in the center of the resulting cake.
  6. Connect the edges of the cake, pinch and roll in breadcrumbs on all sides, forming a zrazy. In the same way, form zrazy from the remaining puree and filling.
  7. Put the zrazy in a frying pan preheated with vegetable oil and fry over medium heat for about 5-7 minutes. Turn over and fry until golden brown.
  8. Serve hot potato zrazy with cheese and ham. The dish goes well with vegetables and sauces. Enjoy your meal!
