Potato Farl     HT   ACC  Irish  50mins

Serves 4    Hot   Vegetables  Accompaniment   Eggless Ireland  British  Europe

900g/2lb Potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
25g/2oz Butter
100g/4oz Plain Flour
1 tbsp Bacon fat, lard or oil


1. Place the potatoes in a large saucepan, cover with salted water, bring to the boil then cook for about 20 minutes or until very tender.

2. Drain the potatoes well, return to the pan together with the butter and mash well.

3. Add the flour to the potato mixture, mix well then lightly knead.

4. Divide the mixture into two and roll out each half on a floured board to form circles about 20cm/8-inches in diameter. Cut each circle into quarters.

5. Heat the fat in a large frying pan, add the potato farls and cook for about 3 minutes on each side. You will probably have to do this in two batches. Keep the first batch warm in the oven.
