Pan Fried Potato Farls

    8 minutes

    Prepared potato farls are pan fried in hot olive oil then seasoned with a pinch of salt. Serve with an Ulster fry or just top with a poached egg. My favourite.

    This recipe reminds me of a recipe for a cake which involves getting a cake mix and following directions on the back of the box. Perhaps a recipe for Fried Chicken: Go to KFC and get a bucket; bring home; eat!  -  20 May 2013  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    A staple in our family for generations. I make them for my own children all the time. The only change I would make is to fry them in sunflower oil. Olive oil does add anything to the taste. They must be served with bacon, sausage, fried egg, mushroom, tomato and fried soda farls. An Ulster fry is a heart attack on a plate, but eaten once in a while, is a wonderful treat and a taste of home.  -  01 Jun 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
