 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/2   lb           Cooked Potatoes
    2       oz           Flour
      1/2   oz           Butter
                         Pinch Salt
                         A little Milk or Buttermilk
                         To bind
   :       To test for the correct heat on the gridle
   sprinkle it with a little flour. If the flour browns
   at once it is too hot; it should take a few seconds to
   turn colour.
   :       Grease a gridle or heavy frying-pan. Mash the
   patatoes with the butter and a little milk. Mix with a
   spoon. Add the salt and a little of the flour. Use the
   fingers until it is all taken up and the dough is
   fairly stiff. Turn out on to a floured surface. Roll
   out to 1/4 inch thick and cut into rounds using a
   breakfast cup as a cutter. Place on the hot greased
   gridle or frying-pan. Cook for 2 minutes util the
   underside is brown. Turn and repeat on the other side.
   Serve piping hot, spread with butter. :
