The humble British potato. So versatile yet mostly steamed, boiled or mashed! I always have left-over potato mash or a bag of potatoes in the pantry. This traditional Breakfast Irish/Scottish inspired recipe (served for breakfast) got me making some simple, quick potato cakes. Low in butter and using whole-wheat flour, they are perfect for a healthy lunch or even for your little one's to enjoy!

Firstly, I boiled my potatoes for 20 minutes on simmering heat. Make sure you check them if they need another 5! I then strained them and put them back into the pan for a minute on low heat to eliminate any excess water.

After this I put them in a bowl to cool for the next stage. Once the potatoes were cool enough to work with, I added them into my mixer. You can also do this by hand! I added my butter and mixed well, followed by my seasoning. I then added my flour until well combined.

Once your happy with your dough mix, you want to flour your work surface/board to roll out the dough. Make sure you also flour your rolling pin! I rolled my potato cake into a circular shape then took a cutter so make individual sizes, however this is only optional! I did mine about 1cm thick.

With an oiled pain hot pan, add your potato cake and leave it took on medium heat for around 4 minutes each side. Depending on the thickness it might need longer so keep an eye out. Place them onto a plate until all of your cakes are done. The house should be smelling lovely by this stage!

I added a few spinach leaves with tomato and avocado for my potato cakes, it's your choice what you add! I hope you enjoy this healthier version, served for breakfast, lunch or a snack!

I love to work with doughy recipes, simply because they are filling, easy and versatile. I can add as much or as little and I can make any recipe healthy. I often use Whole-Wheat flour as an alternative in my cooking.
