- Preparation and cooking time
- Serves 2
- 300g mashed potato
- 4 spring onions , very finely chopped
- 25g plain wholemeal flour
- ½ tsp baking powder
- 3 eggs
- 2 tsp rapeseed oil

- STEP 1
Mix the mash, spring onions, flour, baking powder and 1 of the eggs in a bowl. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan, then spoon in the potato mix to make two mounds. Flatten them to form two 15cm discs and fry for 5-8 mins until the undersides are set and golden, then carefully ip over and cook on the other side.

Meanwhile, wash the chard and put in a pan with some of the water still clinging to it, then cover and cook over a medium heat for 5 mins until wilted and tender. Poach the remaining eggs.
