A low calorie breakfast recipe using Lo-Dough
This is a simple no waffle recipe that really enhances your breakfast.
I woke this morning to Ken asking, I am making breakfast, do you want a ‘tata cake’ in a true Lancashire accent. That’s because it’s where we originate from!
‘No ta’ I replied having that instant lightbulb moment! My best recipes come just before rising in a morning. I quickly got dressed and hurried to the kitchen almost shouldering Ken out of my way as he finished cooking his morning banquet.
I had the pack of Lo-Dough in my hand and the bowl of leftover mashed potatoes from the fridge in an instant. I had promised Ken I would make him potato cakes yesterday but I was far too busy and didn’t get home until late. It’s a bit of a guessing game for me to get them right and we usually have a discussion on eating them on whether they were as good as last time!
I have to quickly mention that conventional Potato Cakes are around 7 syns each on Slimming World – these are 1/2 syn !!
Anyway, I hijacked the mash this morning and quickly blitzed my Lo-Dough and the creation began!
To make Lo-Dough Potato Cakes you will need
1 piece of Lo-Dough blitzed into crumbs using a processor – can be purchased here Low calorie bread alternative
1 heaped ladle full of cold leftover mashed potato – apx 200gms
Frylight to fry
Just combine the ingredients and mash thoroughly with a fork. If you are feeling lazy and have just used the processor for the crumbs, just add the mash and blitz a little while longer!
Shape into 4 rounds, fry in a non stick frying pan sprayed with frylight- it really is so simple!
Serve with bacon, eggs and a splash of ketchup or any other preferred breakfast items!
