Introduction: Potato Scones

Try them you'll like them,
We often serve them with sausage,bacon and eggs,
as a breakfast dish.

Step 1: Potatoes

Plant your potato crop about the end of March.
They should be ready to harvest around the end of August.
Or you could buy some from a shop.

Step 2: Cut 'n'Cook

Peel cut and boil your potatoes,
add some salt.

Step 3: The Mix

You will need 1/2 lb of potatoes
1 Cup plain flour
2 oz butter
1/4 tsp salt
plus 1/2 oz butter for frying.

Step 4: Dough

Mash the potato butter and salt, then add the flour in slowly to make sure it's mixed in
without any lumps.
Roll out the dough on to a floured board.
I just flattened it to about 1/4 inch circle.

Step 5: Cook Up

Add a smear of butter to a heavy based pan.
Cook them on both sides for about 8 minutes.

Not sure I would call this a scone, as that implies a baked cake or quick bread. Maybe "potato pancake" would be a more appropriate name. Either way, looks yummy, will definitely be trying a variation of this sometime soon.

Hi Gitargr8
Here in Scotland they have been called Tattie Scones for a couple of centuries,
Next up is a dropped scone cooked in the same way, both were traditionally cooked on an iron" girdle" or as the rest of the world call it a griddle. they look just like a fat pancake. So stay tuned coming soon.

I will try your recipe. Yes,they were called scones in Scotland where I was a boy.
My Mum or Dad always cooked them in bacon fat. Yum.

I thought potato pancake when I saw the picture, but I'll side with the author, he's in "the know". Whatever they call them wherever you live, they look delicious! Thanks!
