Easy Potato Scone Recipe and Method
Salt/pepper to taste
Knob of butter for mashing potatoes
Peel potatoes and cut into chunks, boil until cooked through
Drain potatoes and leave sitting for approx. 10 mins to air dry
Add butter to potatoes and mash until smooth – Allow to cool
Gradually add flour until mixture becomes a firm dough – this may not require the full amount of flour or may require more. The consistency of the dough is more important than the flour measurement.
Once desired consistency is reached, empty to a floured board and knead gently to bring together.
Separate into two
For each batch, roll into a ball then flatten out into a circular shape, sprinkling flour if required.
Once about the size of a side plate, mark into quarters and fork the surface
I personally cut the scone into quarters for frying before putting them in the pan
Fry gently with oil at moderate heat for a few minutes each side
Serve with breakfast, roast meats, burgers etc
