Well, there is a recipe that can be used for any potato based mash.
The Irish make many types of potato cake, this is just my version.
Its simply a way of using up left-overs.



More pics and stuff on the blog

I used up my turnip greens stamppot in this way, and its a nice brunch/lunch.
I did find the stamppot mash made a really delicious cake.

The stamppot recipe is here and at the blog as well.

With the turnip top and bacon bits in the cake, its like a cross between a normal potato cake with the English staple, bubble and squeak

It's very simple.

INGREDIENTS
400 gm potato based mash
250 gm plain flour
1 egg

PROCEDURE
Simply put the flour, mash and egg in a bowl.
Keep some flour for dusting fingers and board.
Add some salt if it is a plain mash.
Mix with a fork.

Dust your pastry board.
With a serving spoon place a dollop of mix onto the board and shape into patties like burgers.
Finished they should be about 2cm thick, and a diameter of about 15 cm
These can be frozen for future use, just defrost the night before cooking. Just put greaseproof paper between them and store in a lunchbox container or a clingfilm wrap.

Fry in olive oil. Serve with mayonaise and chives or shallots.


Enjoy

Listen to simonj and take it from me that this recipe is delecious. If you don't want to fry them you can also cook them in toaster bags. Delish Very Happy
