Lovely with smoked salmon, grilled bacon, scrambled eggs, mushrooms or grilled tomatoes, these potato pancakes are a treat for breakfast.

Ingredients

Potato(es), Raw

300 g, peeled and cut into chunks

Plain White Flour

110 g

Salt

½ teaspoons

Egg, whole, raw

1 medium, raw

Skimmed Milk

200 ml, 2 tsp parsley, fresh, chopped

Black pepper

teaspoons

Smoked salmon

360 g

Fat Free Natural Fromage Frais

6 tablespoons

Spring Onions

1 medium, chopped

Instructions

  1. Cook the potatoes in lightly salted boiling water for about 20 minutes, until tender. Drain well, then mash with a potato masher. Cool for 10-15 minutes.
  2. Make the batter by whisking together the flour, salt, egg and milk.
  3. When the potatoes have cooled, add them to the batter, whisking them in gradually. Add the parsley and season with black pepper.
  4. Heat a non-stick frying pan and spray with low fat cooking spray. Add 2-3 small ladlefuls of batter and cook for about 1 minute until set. Turn over to cook the other sides. Remove from the pan and keep in a warm place. Cook the remaining batter in the same way until it is all used up.
  5. Serve with a portion of the smoked salmon, 1 tbsp of low fat plain fromage frais and a sprinkling of chopped spring onions.
