I made these to use up leftover mashed potato!

Basically you need 5 parts potato to 2 parts flour, so

200g leftover mash (mmmmm mash)
80g plain flour
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda

Mix the above with your hands to form a ball of dough - you may need to work this a little! Don't worry about the lack of egg or any other binding agent, the starch from the potato and flour bind it pretty well.

Lightly flour a surface and your dough, then roll out. The traditional way is very thin (less than 5mm thick!) and circular, which you then cut into triangles, but you can make these as thick or thin as you like. The thicker they are, the less oil they absorb.

Chill for 5-10 minutes in the fridge and heat some oil or butter in a frying pan. Once again, traditionally these were fried in lard or bacon grease. Fry on each side until brown and crisp.

If you want to 'liven them up', add some chopped spring onion, or spice them up with chilli/ curry powder.

I had mine with bacon. OMNOMNOMNOMNOM :)
