Traditional "Tattie  (Potato)  Scones" are normal fare in the South West of Scotland.  These small this scones made from mashed potato ae generally, lightly fried and served as part of a breakfast with bacon and eggs.

The scones can be eaten simply spread with butter & Jam.





TATTIE SCONE RECIPE


Ingredients:
1cup warm mashed potatoes
1/3cup unsalted butter, melted
salt, to taste
1/2 cup plain flour


Method


Preheat a dry frying pan or griddle over moderate heat.
Mix together all the ingredients until thoroughly blended.
Turn the dough onto a floured board and divide into three.
Roll into a circle about quarter-inch thick.
Cut each circle into 6 wedges.

At this point, you may freeze some of the scones they will last for weeks and weeks and weeks in the freezer.

Sprinkle the hot griddle with flour and bake each circle for about 5 minutes, until the edges begin to brown, turning once to cook both sides.






The TASTE TEST



I tried these both hot, with a 'traditional' fry-up, and cold.  They were OK, but I feel that they were a bit 'heavy', and I certainly preferred potato rosti!  Rosti seem much lighter, and go very nicely in a cheeseburger, or with a fry-up.
