- Potato Cheese Cakes

This is a variation on the recipe for Potato Scones.

Half pound (225g) boiled and mashed potatoes
2.5oz (65g) flour
3 tablespoons melted butter
Half teaspoon salt
4oz grated cheese
2 well beaten eggs

Mash the potatoes while they are still warm and add the butter and salt. Add in enough flour to make it a pliable dough but without making it too dry. The type of potato will affect this.

Add four ounces of grated cheese and two well beaten eggs to the potato and flour. Make into small round cakes, dip in breadcrumbs or flour and fry until golden brown on each side.
