Irish Potato Bread

(8 servings)

  • 2 level cups of freshly mashed potatoes
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • salt and pepper - to taste
Mix the ingredients into a ball by hand.

Roll out to a thickness of 1/4". Cut into 2" x 2" squares and brown lightly in a DRY non-stick frying pan.

These may be frozen, wrapped in Saran wrap for later use.

To serve, fry in bacon fat. They goes well with bacon and eggs.

This is my wife's recreation of my Irish mother's never-written-down recipe. If you substitute oil for bacon fat, you'll lose the authentic flavor.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank falconbird for this recipe.
