How to Cook Left-over Lamb & Potato Cakes
- Mash the potatoes. Chop the cooked lamb in very small pieces then mix, in a large bowl, with 2oz (55g) of butter, the self-raising flour (self-rising flour) and the mashed potato until a soft dough is formed (you can add a splash of milk if necessary, in order to form a pliable dough). Shape this mixture by hand to form 'cakes' about 3" (7.5cm) across and 1" (2.5cm) deep.
- Using just a little oil, fry these cakes over a medium heat for about 5-6 minutes on each side until they are lightly browned. Serve hot (with a fried egg perched on top!)
GRAHAM'S HOT TIP:
If you have no left-over cooked potatoes, make them using our Creamed Potatoes recipe, then allow them to cool.

That's a good idea! I happen to have a piece of cooked lamb in the fridge, and I can soon knock up some mash! Fry a couple of tomatoes, and that's tonight's meal sorted :-)
