Christmas canapés 2013: part 3 – smoked salmon potato scones

A Scot recently introduced me to something like this, except the potato thing was fried, and it was much floppier than this. This thing turned into something much more resembling an actual scone… but was nevertheless equally delicious, if less potato-ey. Thanks to Sainsburys mag again for this one.



(some also topped with Xmas gammon as lil’ bro won’t eat fish)


Smoked salmon potato scones

This makes bajillions, could halve the recipe

300g mashed potato

325g self-raising flour

2 tsp baking powder

pinch salt

2 tsp ground black pepper

2 eggs

4 tbsp milk

crème fraiche and smoked salmon / cream cheese and ham / whatever


1. Rub the flour, baking powder, salt, black pepper and butter together, then mix in the potato, eggs and milk and knead until it comes together into a dough. Press flat on a floured side and cut out scones (I used about a 5cm cutter)

2. Lay on a floured tray and bake until golden on top and cooked through (I think mine took about 10 mins)

3. Split and leave to cool for a minute, then top with whatever you desire. Yum.
