Tottie scones, or Tattie scones, depending on where in Scotland you're from, are a delicious breakfast item, typically eaten as part of a fried breakfast or on a morning roll.
The Irish have something practically similar called 'potato farls'.
For the most part, you'll find them either in the form of a square or triangular wedge. Most tend to buy them as they're readily available for pennies.
But as a Scot living away from "home", I've had to recreate many dishes that I once took for granted.
