Irish potato farls served with a Clonakilty fry up

When making an Irish breakfast, people think black and whitepudding, sausages, rashers, eggs and even tomatoes but often forget about potato farls. A perfect addition to a traditional Clonakilty fry up, you can add some finely chopped spring onions into your mixture for a little extra flavour.

Serves 4


  • 300g mashed potato
  • 70g soda bread flour
  • 50g melted butter (not needed if it’s in the mash already)
  • Salt & pepper
  • 8 Clonakilty Ispíní Sausages
  • 8 Clonakilty Rashers
  • 8 pieces of Clonakilty Blackpudding
  • 8 pieces of Clonakilty Whitepudding
  • 4 free range eggs (fried or poached)
  • 2 tomatoes (halved)


1. Place a medium sized pan over a medium heat.

2. Take your mashed potato and add in the butter (if not already added), the seasoning, and the flour.

3. Gently kneed and roll into a ball.

4. Sprinkle some flour onto a bench and roll out the dough into a circle about 3/4cm thick.

5. Score into four, lift into the pan and cook for 4 to 5 minutes on each side.

6. Allow to cool on a rack.

7. Pan fry in a little butter or oil and serve. 

8. Serve as part of a traditional Clonakilty fry up.
