Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat a heavy, thick frying pan until a droplet of water evaporates immediately if you flick it inches (DO NOT put any oil or fat of any sort in the pan, the potatoes WILL stick if you do).
  2. Tip in your mashed potatoes and spread out to cover the pan base.
  3. Cook on a medium heat and turn and shake occasionally.
  4. Turn over in parts (it isn't like an omelette, don't worry if it breaks).
  5. Keep frying until you have a solid crispy shell around it and a nice creamy center.
  6. Enjoy with a spicy tomato sauce or ketchup and mayonnaise.
