Re: Scone Recipes Needed. "The Breakfast Challenge" pt.2

Not sure how relative this is, but....

We met a family from Ireland in the Bahamas. As in all cruiser discussions the subject of food came up. We have an oven but never use it. They said they didnt use theirs either. They made bread on the stovetop, but not any bread I had ever heard of. They said it was fairly common in Ireland and very easy to make. I like easy and so does the Admiral.

Irish Potato Bread.

Make mashed potatoes. The packaged instant potatoes are excellent because they are already "pre-mashed".
Add flour. How much? Enough to thicken the potatoes to an almost stiff dough.
Grease up and heat up a griddle or frypan. Take a "gob" of the mix and flatten it in the frypan. How flat? Up to the cook. Thin cooks faster, fat tastes more like bread but must be cooked longer at a lower heat. Putting a cover on it also helps.
Continue on as though it were a fat pancake.

She also mentioned adding things like milk, butter, baking powder, raisins, and almost anything else that seemed appropriate, but that varied from cook to cook.

We have made it and really like it whenever the local Bahamian bread is not available.

Take two at low eight
