About Me

We moved out to Portugal to live a frugal but better , simpler and peaceful life, our house is a very basic, semi ruin, up in the hills outside Figueiro Dos Vinhos, where we work our land, enjoy life with each other and our dogs, and hope to make the smallest carbon footprint we can,

Potatoe Floddies.

This is what I do with all the odd potatoes that get damaged when digging them upor a little soft or just for any reason, its a way of storing them in the freezer and very economical too...

Boil a big pan of potatoes...
Mash with a fork, not too smooth!
Add two beaten eggs, a couple of big handfulls of oats, a large grated onion, grated cheese to your taste, a sprinkling of herbs, good ones I've tried are thyme or sage, or for a nice spicy flavour try Cumin...
mix well.
with hands, form a burger shape, roll in seasoned flour with seseme seeds in, and put on tray to open freeze... pack into bags when frozen hard, shallow fry from frozen.
