Need Inspiration?

Being from Ireland the first thought that came into our mind was Potato Bread, also called Potato Farls depending on which part of the Island of Ireland you are from. It’s such a staple food here and we eat it once a week at least. Made traditionally with plain mashed potato our recipe puts a bit of a twist on the traditional. We used Mash Direct’s Champ. For some of our readers champ may also be an unfamiliar food. Champ is mashed potatoes with spring onions mixed through. It’s something we have always grown up eating. If you haven’t tried it before, try it. You won’t be disappointed.

This recipe is so simple you’ll be shocked!







The Ingredients:

1 x 400g Pack of Champ or Mashed Potato

30g Plain Flour

1 tbsp of Melted Butter

A Pinch of Salt

The How-To:

Heat the mashed potatoes in the microwave or oven according to the instructions on the pack.

Add these to a bowl and mix well to break up any lumps.

Stir in the flour, melted butter and salt.

Mix together until a dough forms.




Knead until the dough comes together.

Lightly flour a work surface and tip out the dough. Use a floured rolling pin to roll the dough out into a circular shape around a quarter of an inch thick.

Cut the Potato Bread dough into 4 even pieces.

Lightly flour the bottom of a griddle or frying pan. No Oil.




Add the Potato Bread to the pan and cook on a low heat until lightly browned (about 3-4 mins). Flip and cook the other side.

You’re Done!
