Mealy Potatoes

by Susan
(Inveraray)

Don't know if this is too simple to call a recipe, but it's a lovely way to have potatoes and goes great with fresh simple food like grilled mackerel.

Boil up some new potatoes in a pot as you would normally till they're ready to eat (20 mins).

Drain the potatoes and pop in a bowl.

Melt some butter in the pan, add a handful of oatmeal and some chopped up cyboes/spring onion/or whatever you call a wee onion with a long green sprout.

Sautee for a minute or two. Put the potatoes in the pot with the mix, swirl around till they're coated and serve your "Mealy Potatoes".

Mum's oaty potatoes
by: E Ferguson

Mealy Potatoes
My mother always made them with cooked new potatoes, knob of butter then add chopped spring onion and oats. Give it a good shake in the pan to coat them thoroughly. Serve with salad or at buffets. The best.

My Uncle had a recipe...
by: Chuck B.

for what he called "mealy potatoes". It was similar to the recipe shown except he garnished them with fresh cut parsley. Excellent!

Proper food!
by: Kevin

I love this simple recipe. I often eat new tatties in a bowl with butter and milk, so simple it should be an offence.

Sounds good . . . . going to try it myself!
by: Barb

I love New Potatoes and occasionally do the same thing to them, but I usually use parsley. Next time I'm going to try spring onions and oatmeal - sounds great.

The common spud shaken not stirred
by: JC

Sometimes we just serve the common spud with a little butter - but the Scots like to add just a touch and colour (color) but keep the character of spud intact. Well done Susan
