Irish potato bread aka potato farls

Irish potato bread or potato farls, traditionally served with breakfast but also great on there own warm served with just real butter. This simple bread recipe is a great way to us up any leftover mashed potatoes or boiled potatoes.


For this amount 8 slices I used:
350 grams leftover mashed potatoes
80 grams of plain flour
1 pinch of salt
(you can also add 1 tsp of butter if your mashed had none added)


Mix in a bowl until the dough is formed, then knead on a well floured surface. Divide the dough into 2.

Roll or press out the dough to form a flat circle about 1/4 inch thick, then cut into quarters.

Cook on a hot cast iron skillet pan for about 3mins each side until their nicely browned.

Serve straight away with butter or as part of a breakfast
