Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Potato Cakes, Crispy Bacon & Beans

Boil a kettle

Peel and chop the potatoes roughly into bite-sized pieces

Add the chopped potatoes to a pot of plenty of boiled water with a pinch of salt and bring to the boil over a high heat

Once boiling, cook for 12-15 min or until fork tender, then drain and return to the pot

2 Potato Cakes, Crispy Bacon & Beans

Meanwhile, peel and finely dice the red onion[s]

Peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic

Chop the chives finely

Boil the kettle again

3 Potato Cakes, Crispy Bacon & Beans

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with 2-3 tbsp olive oil over a medium-high heat

Once hot, add the diced onion, chopped garlic, chilli flakes (can't handle the heat? Go easy!) and a pinch of salt and cook for 3 min or until the onion has softened

Drain and rinse the cannellini beans

4 Potato Cakes, Crispy Bacon & Beans

Add the chopped tomatoes, crumble in the Knorr chicken stock cube[s] and add 100ml [200ml] boiled water

Add 1 tbsp [1 1/2 tbsp] sugar and the cider vinegar and bring to the boil

Once boiling, reduce the heat to medium-low and cook for 10 min, then add the drained cannellini beans and keep on a low heat until ready to serve

5 Potato Cakes, Crispy Bacon & Beans

Once cooked, drain and run the potatoes under cold water until cool enough to handle

Mash them until smooth

Add half of the chopped chives, 2-3 tbsp olive oil and season generously with both salt and pepper, then mix to combine

6 Potato Cakes, Crispy Bacon & Beans

Add 5 tbsp [10 tbsp] flour and mix to combine into a dough

Place the dough onto a floured surface and bring it together into a ball with your hands

Divide the ball into 6 [12] pieces and roll each into a golf ball shape

Pat each ball down and sprinkle with a little flour – these are your potato cakes

7 Potato Cakes, Crispy Bacon & Beans

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with 2-3 tbsp olive oil and a knob of butter over a medium-high heat

Once hot, add the potato cakes and cook for 4 min on both sides or until browned

Transfer to kitchen paper and season with both salt and pepper

Reserve the pan for the next step
