The Irish make many types of potato cake, this is just my version.
Its simply a way of using up left-overs.
I used up my turnip greens stamppot in this way, and its a nice brunch/lunch.
I did find the stamppot mash made a really delicious cake.
With the turnip top and bacon bits in the cake, its like a cross between a normal potato cake with the English staple, bubble and squeak
It's very simple.
400 gm potato based mash
250 gm plain flour
Simply put the flour, mash and egg in a bowl.
Keep some flour for dusting fingers and board.
Add some salt if it is a plain mash.
Mix with a fork.
* 2012 updateFor a bit of variety, crunch and just to look a little different you can incorporate rolled oats
Simply mix some rolled oats with the flour
