Fried Potato Farls

Potato farls are one of my favorite foods, and insanely versatile. They are pretty much just mashed potatoes mixed with flour and then fried. They are also known as potato cake or potato bread and are great as a breakfast side dish. You can make sandwiches with them, they go great with omelets, or you can just eat them by themselves.
Here’s what you’ll need for 4 good sized farls:
- 2 Potatoes
- About a teaspoon of melted butter
- 1/2 cup of flour
- salt to taste
- 2 or 3 teaspoons Any sort of oil I would recommend vegetable or peanut oil, but all I had on hand was olive oil.
First, peel and cut the potatoes into 3 or 4 pieces and boil them in water for about 20 minutes.
Put the potatoes and the butter into the bowl of an electric mixer.
Mix them together until smooth.
Add the flour and about a decent amount of salt, about 1/4 teaspoon.
Mix until everything is nicely blended.
Place the dough onto a well floured surface.
Knead the dough and make it between 1/2 and 1/4 inch thick. Then, cut it into fourths.
Pour oil into a frying pan, and place a piece of dough in it.
Fry the farls on each side for about 2 minutes, until they are nice and golden brown.
