The Perfect Irish Potato Bread Recipe


This traditional Irish griddle bread has humble origins. It is just as happy with some sausage and bacon as it is pimped up for a dinner party with smoked salmon and sour cream.


Potato bread

Makes 8 pieces

500g mashed potato (seasoned with salt, pepper and mashed with butter)

50 g plain flour

¼ tsp baking powder

Extra butter and flour




Sift the flour and baking powder into the bowl with the mashed potato

Mix together until you have a dough.

Dust a surface with more flour and roll out the dough with a rolling pin.

Cut into 8 pieces and cook for 3 minutes each side on a hot griddle or frying pan.

Serve straight away with lashings of Irish butter.
