Oaty Potato Cakes And Smoked Salmon

How To Make Oaty Potato Cakes And Smoked Salmon:

Preparation time: 5-10 minutes
Cooking time: 20 minutes

Serves: 2


100g (31/2oz) White’s Speedicook porridge oats

450g (1lb) floury potatoes, peeled and diced

25g (1oz) butter (see cook’s tip)

4 large eggs

150ml (1/4pint) skimmed milk

4 slices smoked salmon

1 spring onion, trimmed and thinly sliced

Salt and freshly ground black pepper


1.) Cook the potatoes in a pan of lightly salted boiling water for 8-10 minutes.

2.) Drain well and return to the saucepan and heat for 30-40 seconds to drive off any excess moisture. Allow to cool.

3.) Mash the potatoes with half the butter and season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Stir in the oats and divide the mixture into 4 equal pieces. Shape into 4inch patties.

4.) Whisk the eggs and milk together and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Add half the remaining butter to a large non-stick frying pan and heat until foaming.

5.) Add the potato cakes and fry for 3-4 minutes on each side until golden brown adjusting the heat if necessary so the butter does not brown.

6.) Arrange on kitchen paper, cover and keep warm.

7.) Wipe out the pan and return to the heat, add the remaining butter and melt. Stir in the egg mixture and cook over a medium heat for 2-3 minutes stirring until creamy and just set.

8.) Arrange the potato cakes on individual serving plates (serve both or one on the side instead of toast).

9.) Spoon over the scrambled eggs and smoked salmon. Sprinkle over the spring onions and freshly ground black pepper and serve immediately.

Cook’s Tip:

For an even healthier version omit the butter from the mashed potatoes and use a low-calorie cooking spray to cook the potato cakes and scrambled eggs.
