    Elaine Lemm, our fantastic British and Irish Food expert says that this recipe is called "Tattie Scones or Potato Scones" in Scotland, and in Ireland, it's called "Fadge or Potato Bread." Whatever you call this dish, these little potato rolls are easy to make, economical and a good use for leftover mashed potatoes. Fadge can be baked or pan-fried.

    "Ireland's national dish is Irish stew. A traditional Irish stew was always made with mutton, but more often nowadays, is made with lamb.

The choice is yours." - Elaine Lemm, Guide to British and Irish Food
