    Bergy's Note:

    Wonderful as a side dish or for breakfast/Brunch. It is quite high in fat especially if you use dripping to fry them.

      This was good. I didn't follow messurements and kind of "winged" it. I had a friend who is allergic to wheat come, so I added corn mean instead of flour to make it the right consistancy. I added some green onion and chives too. Good. Will do again

      These went well with our Irish breakfast. I will make them again, as they had a wonderful flavor and were easy to prepare. The next time I prepare them I will go for more dense mashed potatoes or add a little more flour, as they did fall apart when frying.
