Recipe type: Side Dish
Cuisine: Irish
Serves: 4 servings
  • 675 - 900 g (1 1/2 - 2 pounds) Russet potatoes
  • 50 g (2 ounces) unsalted butter
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 Tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • salt
  • 2 generous pinches of grated nutmeg
  • 4 Tablespoons vegetable oil
  1. Scrub the potatoes thoroughly in cold water, then boil them for 30 minutes in a covered pan of water until nice and soft. Leave the potatoes to cool before peeling and mashing them in a basin.
  2. Melt, but do not heat, the butter and pour it over the potatoes with the egg yolks, flour, salt to taste and the nutmeg.
  3. Work the ingredients together into a smooth dough.
  4. Using floured hands shape the potato into a long sausage about the thickness of your thumb, then cut it into 5-cm/2-inch lengths.
  5. Heat the oil a little at a time in a large frying pan. Cook the potato fingers in batches, turning them frequently, until brown and crisp and keep each batch warm on a hot plate as the potato fingers are cooked.
