While I was away Serena’s great-aunt came to North Carolina and cooked up some authentic Puerto Rican food. Somehow Serena saved me some of these Rellenas de Papas to fry up when I got home.
Rellenas de Papa are basically mashed potato dough rolled into a ball with seasoned meat in the middle then fried. These things have a nice crunch on the outside but you are immediately hit with the soft mashed potatoes followed by the flavor and texture of the meat.
When I got done with these jammies, ideas of what I could fill them with flooded my mind. I was told it was blasphemy to put anything but ground beef inside but anyone who knows how I operate knows some pulled pork, curry chicken and other goodies will be inside.
