Potato Scone Recipe

This is my mother's recipe. In Scotland we call it Potato Scones, the Irish call it Potato bread. Either way it's yum.

450gms or 1lb Mashed Potato (Instant is ok too)
80gms or 3oz Plain Flour
10gm or 1oz margarine/butter
1/2 tspn Salt

Add the marg/butter & salt to the potatoes, then work into flour. Turn out on to a floured surface, divide into 4 eaual portions. Roll each portion out very thinly into a circle, prick with a fork and divide into 4. Bake on a well heated frying pan for about 5 mins, turning when cooked. Cool in  a paper towel  or a cool plate.

Great with a good fried breakfast. I love this hot with salt. Traditional Scottish or Irish breakfasts include fried egg, bacon or sausages, potato scones/bread, fries tomatoes, and black pudding.

Lol, out of that I would only eat tomatoes and potato scones.  Black pudding is congealed blood with spices, how disgusting is that.
