Potato Pie Swirls


Very tasty pies that are quite quick to make!

  • Preheat the oven to 180* C (350* F) Fan.
  • Prepare the creamy mashed potatoes.
  • Sauté the bacon in a deep pan or pot, over medium heat.
  • Brown until golden brown and crispy. Remove from heat and set aside to drain on paper towels.
  • Use the same pan, without wiping it down. Sauté the peppers and the leek until they soften.
  • When ready, add the mashed potatoes.
  • Add the bacon and stir until the mixture becomes soft and smooth.
  • Add the grated cheese and pepper, according to your tastes. Stir to combine.
  • Refrigerate to chill.
  • When ready, transfer mixture to a piping bag.
  • Place phyllo dough on a working surface and cover with a damp towel to keep them fresh.
  • Working with one sheet of phyllo at a time, place first sheet with the longer side facing you and brush generously with olive oil.
  • Pipe the filling along the edge of the longer side, leaving a 5 cm border from the bottom and 2 cm from either side, to make it easier to roll.
  • Fold the longer border over the filling. Fold the 2 cm along the sides over also. This will help keep the filling in place and not let it run our while baking.
  • Gently and loosely roll into a log. Do not roll tight. Rolling it tight will make the phyllo tear while baking.
  • Shape rolled log into a swirl. Repeat process with the remaining phyllo dough.
  • Carefully transfer swirls on to a rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Brush with a generous amount of olive oil.
  • Bake for 250-25 minutes, until crunchy and golden brown.


Chill the mixture completely before you fill the swirls.

Brush them with oil so they can turn nice and golden while baking!
