The word farl originates from the Gaelic word fardel meaning four parts. These potato griddle breads can be made with leftover mashed potatoes too. Serve hot with a little butter and salt, or fry them alongside soda bread as part of an Ulster Fry-up.
England has Bubble and Squeak, Ireland Colcannon and in Scotland the delicious fry-up of vegetables is called Rumbledethumps. This Rumbledethumps recipe is based on a classic recipe from Sue Lawrence one of Scotland's most famous cooks.
