In Belarusian cuisine there is a dish from potato filled with meat or mushrooms. It is called “potato zrazy”. This dish takes some time to prepare and needs some practice. Well, as a mother of two boys I don’t have too much time so I find my easy way to cook “zrazy”. I call them “lazy potato fritters”.
