Good even for using left over mashed potato.

These were surprisingly easy to make, I'd always thought they would be tricky. They weren't quite as tasty as the shop ones I'm used to, but I probably added too much flour for rolling as the potato was still warm. I just fried them in a frying pan and they came out beautifully!

Tattie scones a thing of my childhood, adjusted the recipe to make it gluten free and vegan - reall great easy lunch option to bread - just yummy with some soup, next time I think I'll make half potato and half sweet potato or neep - would be interesting to change things around a little.

I keep a pack of dried mash in for making these. Means I can make exactly what I need, whenever I fancy making them. Equal quantity of flour to potato powder. Make up the mash with boiling water then add flour and knead lightly until smooth. Cheese and onion dried mashed potato offers another tasty option.
