Potato Pancakes with Kale & Roast Peppers

These delicious savoury pancakes can be topped any way you fancy!

Cooking PotMETHOD

  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas 4-5.

  2. Start by peeling and chopping the Elfe Potataoes into even pieces.

  3. Place in a pan of cold water and bring to the boil, simmering until tender (20-25 minutes).

  4. Drain the potatoes and allow the steam to dry off.

  5. Mash the potatoes with the cream cheese and a generous pinch of salt and pepper.
    (plus the warmed milk & butter if you fancy).

  6. Add the flour and egg and mix thoroughly with a fork or a metal spoon.

  7. Working with your hands, form a ball with the dough
    (Try not to overwork it, you just want it all to combine)

  8. Dust with flour and on a floured surface, shape the dough into a circle that is 1cm thick using your hands.

  9. Using a cutter or glass, shape the pancakes, re-rolling the left over pieces once you’ve cut the first shapes. Use a spatula to lift the pancakes into the pan, they’re delicate and will get bent out of shape if you use your hands.

  10. Heat a little butter over a medium heat in a frying pan. Fry the pancakes until brown on each side, then place on baking parchment in the oven for 15 minutes until cooked through.

  11. Serve hot from the oven with gently fried tomatoes & kale & roasted peppers (make your own or use from a jar).

This basic potato pancake recipe is great for topping with anything you fancy!
Try with smoked salmon & chives, smokey bacon and poached eggs…or even a classic Eggs Benedict!
