Easy potato scones
- Preparation and cooking time
- Serves 4
Topped with crisp bacon and grated mature cheddar, these simple pan-fried potato scones make a hearty brunch for friends
- STEP 1
Cook the potatoes in plenty of salted simmering water until tender. Drain well and mash. Sift the flour and baking powder into a bowl, add the butter, milk, eggs, mash and plenty of seasoning and mix to a sticky dough.
- STEP 2
Heat some butter and a little oil in a large frying pan. Fry dollops of the mixture as you would Scotch pancakes for 3 mins on each side until browned. You may need to do this in 2 batches so keep the fried ones warm in the oven. Serve with crisp bacon and grated mature cheddar, or blue cheese and a drizzle of honey.
