Recipe of the Week
Potatoes with Special Sauce
Peas and Celery
Savoury Mince Scrolls
But in the end I tryed something that I knew our children would eat, potato cakes. However I did cheat and got this recipe from my vintage cook book.
2 Cups left-over mashed potatoes (I used grated potatoes)
1 teaspoon onion juice (we used lemon juice)
A good pinch of mace
Fat for frying (best to use oil from other food)
Season the cold potato with onion juice and mace and form into firm flat cakes. Dust them thoroughly with flour and brown both sides in a little hot fat. (The fat left over from frying or grilling sausages is very tasty for potato cakes.) Grated cheese, or chopped cooked meat, ham or bacon are delicious added to the potato if you have them on hand.
