About this recipe: The simple things in life are always the best! This recipe only requires leftover mashed potatoes, a little butter, flour and salt! Serve with bacon and egg the next time you have a crowd over for breakfast or brunch.

Serves: 6 

  • 450g cooked potatoes
  • 55g butter
  • 110g self-raising flour, or as needed
  • 1/2 pinch salt

Prep:20min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:30min 

  1. Heat a lightly greased flat griddle or heavy based frying pan over medium-high heat.
  2. Mash potatoes with flour, butter and salt until a stiff dough forms.
  3. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured work surface. Knead dough lightly and roll dough out to about 1cm thick. Cut into six triangular wedges.
  4. Working in batches, cook potato bread in hot pan, turning once until golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes per side.


If you are using leftover (cold) potatoes, melt butter before mixing it in.
