This was a good recipe! Tattie scones are definitely never dry! I added a little more flour to the mixture, just a touch, and cooked them in a little olive oil instead of flour. They turned out great and were delicious with baked beans and eggs.
Yummy, Yummy, Yummy. these were so good. We've recently gone gluten free so I "de-gluten-ized" your recipe with a white cornflour sub. for the plain flour. next time I think I'll add some onion powder in with the flour for a little different taist. Thanks for the wonderful post :)
I was weaned on these scones, except my mother called it "slim bread" which is a Northern Ireland name. Anyway, this is a good basic recipes. Needless to say they need lots of butter, or whatever you choose. Try frying them alongside your bacon and eggs on a Sun. morning - not healthy but tasty. WE have to be sinful sometimes.
Great way to use up left-over mashed potato and an essential ingredient for the best weekend breakfast (bacon, eggs, sausage, baked beans, black pudding and tattie scone) Now all I need to do is find a good black pudding in Auckland! These potato scones are a bit softer than the ones you buy in Scotland. I used to put the bought ones in the toaster but I think you would have to add more flour to be able to do that. I can't comment on reheating frozen ones since none of mine made it to the freezer. We ate them all!
These are great! Yender and delicate, yet hearty and satisfying. I've got half the batch tucked away in the freezer, so we'll see how they do... I used red potatoes. Next time I'll add some rutabaga or parsnip. I was a bit skeptical with no soda, but ot makrs a nice biscut(?) vegetable patty(?) Not quite either, but really good. :ove the flavor amd texture... Slather with lots of butter, or herb butter, or herb cream cheese...
