Kipper Cakes

A great comfort food breakfast.


  • 2 cups of cold mashed potato
  • 1 onion chopped finely
  • 1 tin John West canned kippers, drained.  (substitute tuna, salmon, etc.). 
  • 1 generous tsp hot English mustard
  • 1 tsp crushed garlic
  • Salt and pepper
  • Chopped parsley 
  • 1 egg
  • Breadcrumbs for coating
  • Oil for frying
  1. Mix ingredients
  2. take a generous tablespoon at a time and roll in breadcrumbs
  3. flatten to a patty or roll into a croquette and fry until golden and crisp on the outside

That’s it. 

Makes four serves of three. 

Lots of room for experimenting!

About Uisce úr

Though I am old with wandering Through hollow lands and hilly lands, I will find out where she has gone, And kiss her lips and take her hands; And walk among long dappled grass, And pluck till time and times are done, The silver apples of the moon, The golden apples of the sun.

    You could try real kippers, too. They should be easy enough to find?
