Mashed-Potato Spring Rolls

  • SERVINGS: 4 to 6
  • FAST

David Chang took F&W's Thanksgiving challenge by improvising a Momofuku-style feast from basic leftovers, including turning mashed potatoes and green beans into this crispy canapé, a salute to the 1950s.

  1. 16 slices of packaged white bread
  2. 1 cup mashed potatoes
  3. 1/2 cup thinly sliced cooked green beans
  4. 1/4 teaspoon togarashi (see Note) or cayenne pepper
  5. Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  6. 1 large egg yolk mixed with 1 tablespoon of water
  7. 2 cups vegetable oil, for frying
  8. Warm turkey gravy and Sriracha chile sauce, for serving
  1. Stack the bread in 4 piles and trim the crusts, reserving them for Cinnamon Toast Crumb Crust. Using a rolling pin, roll out each bread slice to a thin 3-by-5-inch rectangle.
  2. In a bowl, combine the mashed potatoes, green beans and togarashi; season with salt and pepper. Brush the edges of 4 bread rectangles with the egg yolk mixture. Shape 1 tablespoon of the potato mixture into a log along a long edge of a rectangle, leaving 1/2 inch on each end. Tightly roll up the bread to form a cylinder; press the ends together to seal. Repeat with the remaining bread and potato mixture.
  3. In a skillet, heat the oil to 325°. Add half of the rolls and fry, turning occasionally, until well-browned, about 1 1/2 minutes. Transfer to paper towels. Repeat with the remaining rolls. Serve with gravy and Sriracha.
Notes Togarashi, a Japanese blend of chiles and sesame, is available at Asian markets.
