Classic fried Irish potato flat bread (pancake), typically served at breakfast.
1 1/4 pound potatoes
1 cup all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon salt
- Peel and halve potatoes; put in large saucepan with enough water to cover. Bring to boil; simmer, covered, 20 to 30 minutes, until fork-tender.
- Drain well; return to saucepan over low heat. Add butter; mash potatoes well. Stir in flour and salt. Gather mixture into a ball; turn onto lightly floured surface. Knead lightly until smooth. Divide dough in half. Roll out one half into an 8-inch circle, about 1/4-inch thick. Cut into quarters; set aside. Repeat with remaining dough.
- In large nonstick skillet, heat half the oil over medium-high heat. Cook dough quarters in batches, 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown, adding more oil as necessary. Serve warm.
