Tattie scones

I had some leftover mashed potatoes from making yesterday's Shepherd's Pie so thought I'd try making some traditional tattie scones.  I haven't made these for years!!  I used GF flour but that's the only sub I made to a traditional recipe.

You need approx 4 parts mashed potato to 1 part flour.  I had about 400g of mashed potato (mashed yesterday with some goat's butter that was past the date but tasted fine) so added 100g of self raising gluten free flour (Doves Farm).

It helps if you warm the mashed potatoes before adding the flour.  Mix together until you get a soft dough.  Then roll out to about 1/2 cm thick.

Traditional tattie scones are shaped into a circle then cut into quarters.  You can see I keep the skins on.  Waste nothing!

I don't have a proper girdle pan so would normally use a hot non stick frying pan. But since The Teenager was given a crepe maker thingy for Christmas I thought I'd try it out for these.  Worked a treat!  He loves tattie scones so we'll add them to his repertoire of stuff to cook when he's a poor student!

I used a glass to cut out some round ones too.

Cheap, tasty and filling!


  1. One of my favourite things in the whole wide world :) Love them fried for breakfast with a duck egg :)


    1. Me and G like them with fried eggs and beans :-) xxx

  2. I was just telling my daughter they are easy to make last week when she couldn't get any in time to take them to her partner in Dubai. I will now bookmark your recipe to show her it, thanks. x

    1. You're welcome. Always work better with leftover mash for reason :-)
