Potato Bread is one of the traditional dishes from Ireland that can be eaten cold or cooked in bacon fat as part of that massive breakfast "fry-up". Potato Bread which is also known as Fadge, Potato Fadge or Farl or Potato Cake is best eaten fresh hot from the griddle or pan with substantial amount of melted butter and sugar sprinkled on top. Potato Bread is part of the traditional breakfast in Ireland, no breakfast is complete without it. To make Potato Bread, here is a simpe recipe: 225 grams cooked potato 1/2 tablespoon salt 25 grams melted butter 50 grams plain flour Mash potatoes well. Add salt and butter, then work in enough flour to make a pliable dough. Divide the dough in two and rolll out on a floured surface to form two circles 22cm / 9 inch in diameter and 1/2cm/ 1/4 inch in thickness. Cut each circle into quarters and bake on a hot griddle or pan for about 5 minutes or until browned on both sides. Some use bacon fat for additional taste. By substituting flour by oatmeal, a variety of Potato Bread can be prepared called Pratie Oaten which is made by following the same procedure above and by substituting flour with oatmeal.
