Potato Bread in the Woods.

It's worth treating yourselves a little, isn't it? and one thing we all love here in Northern Ireland is potato bread. It's called fadge in certain places and potato cake in others but it's basically all the same thing.
and it's incredibly simple to make. You can use either dehydrated potato for convenience or left over boiled potatoes, flour and if desired a knob of butter and a little salt.
mix the potatoes until it's soft and fluffy then mix in flour (salt and butter if desired)
flatten it into a patty about 1/4 of an inch thick, and cook in a dry or lightly oiled pan
and that's it, it's gorgeous and nutritious. you can always add extras to it as well to flavour it..
like any wild green, or even herbs or spices
it would be easy to replicate this with burdock or cattail root and powdered nut flour or cattail pollen or anything similar.
