I don’t think there is anything more satisfying for me than using up what’s left in the fridge instead of sliding food into the bin.
One of the key components that make up an Irish breakfast is potato farls. With a little mashed potato left over from Saturday’s dinner I will show you how to use up those left overs to make a great breakfast or brunch. Serve them pan fried with a poached egg or why not have them with a good old hangover cure, the traditional fry up? For a touch of high end produce, i used Clonakilty Sausages which can be obtained from most major supermarkets, amazing!
300g mashed potato
70g soda bread flour
50g melted butter (not needed if it’s in mash already)
Salt and pepper
Take s medium sized pan and place over a medium heat.
Take your mashed potato, add in the butter, seasoning and flour.
Gently kneed and roll into a ball.
Sprinkle some flour into a bench and Roll out the dough into a circle, some people cut out a circle with a plate but I just moulded roughly as I didn’t want to waste an ounce. About 3/4cm thick. Score into four, lift into the pan and cook for 4-5 minutes each side.
