Love potato scones (and many other names). Also referred to as "slim bread" in some part of N. Ireland. This is a good recipe and my mother, I swear, made the best. Best, we think, straight off the griddle and a cast iron pan works best. Thanks for submitting

I am making these for the Virtual Tour of Great Britain. I would like to add my comments. I am British, part Scottish and English with family in Northern Ireland. Potato scones or cakes as they arev sometimes called, are BOTH Scottish and Irish! They may be called potato cakes, potato pancakes, potato scones...............but they are popular in BOTH countries! FT:-)

This is amazing. My FIL goes wild for these any time I make them. We are lucky to get one . He is Scottish and vouches for their authenticity. I cook these on a dry cast iron griddle. Best if not done too brown.

I just wanted to clear up a confusion: potato scones are a Scottish traditional recipe and not Irish; no wonder your Irish husband AKillian24 had not had them before.

Wow! My husband is Irish and had never had these before! He loved them! Great with over easy eggs and butter!
