Crispy Rashers with Potato Cakes

Serves 4 


  • 8 rashers
  • 750g potatoes, peeled
  • 1 small onion
  • 4 scallions, finely sliced
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 teasp. plain flour
  • 15g parsley, chopped
  • Salt and freshly-ground black pepper
  • 1 tablesp. olive oil

To Cook

Grate the potatoes and onion.  You can use a food processor if you wish.  Wrap in a tea towel and squeeze out the moisture.  Then place in a bowl along with the scallions, eggs, flour, parsley, salt and pepper.  Mix well.

Heat a 22cm non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and add the olive oil.  When hot add the potato mixture and spread it out over the base of the pan.  Cover and cook for 10 minutes.  Shake the pan frequently to stop the mixture from sticking.  Remove the cover and finish off under a hot grill until fully cooked and golden brown.  Slide out on to a plate and keep warm while you grill the rashers until crispy.

Cut the potato cake into wedges and serve with the rashers.
