Serves: 4 • Prep Time: • Cook Time:
When making an Irish breakfast, people think black and whitepudding, sausages, rashers, eggs and even tomatoes but often forget about potato farls. A perfect addition to a traditional Clonakilty fry up, you can add some finely chopped spring onions into your mixture for a little extra flavour.
300g mashed potato
70g soda bread flour
50g melted butter (not needed if it’s in the mash already)
Salt & pepper
8 Clonakilty Ispíní Sausages
8 Clonakilty Rashers
8 pieces of Clonakilty Blackpudding
8 pieces of Clonakilty Whitepudding
4 free range eggs (fried or poached)
2 tomatoes (halved)
1. Place a medium sized pan over a medium heat.
2. Take your mashed potato and add in the butter (if not already added), the seasoning, and the flour.
3. Gently kneed and roll into a ball.
4. Sprinkle some flour onto a bench and roll out the dough into a circle about 3/4cm thick.
5. Score into four, lift into the pan and cook for 4 to 5 minutes on each side.
6. Allow to cool on a rack.
7. Pan fry in a little butter or oil and serve.
8. Serve as part of a traditional Clonakilty fry up.
