A pair of potato cakes

Potato scallop a term that is sometimes applied to various different food preparations using potatoes.

 

 

 

 
Hashed potatoes
In parts of England, the term can refer to a patty of hashed potatoes, a kind of hash brown. These are available pre-made and frozen in supermarkets and are served by many restaurants, such as fast food stands, often as part of the breakfast menu. It can also refer to a sort of potato pancake.

Best eaten warm, with baked beans, as part of a full English breakfast.

 
Mashed potatoes
Another variant popular in the United Kingdom is prepared from cold mashed potatoes and fresh eggs. The two ingredients are combined together, then fried until crispy on the outside.

 
Scallops

American potato cakes, also referred to as a potato patties

In Australia and England potato cakes in the form of thin slices of potato, battered and deep-fried, are commonly sold in fish and chip shops and takeaway food shops. The terminology used in Australia differs from state to state. In New South Wales, Queensland, and the ACT they are usually referred to as “potato scallops”, or simply as “scallops” (to avoid confusion, scallops eaten as seafood may be known as “sea scallops”. In Tasmania and Victoria, the term “potato cakes” is used, while in South Australia and Western Australia “potato fritter” is most common.

Potato scallops originate from central England and are common in fish and chip shops there. This variant is normally a thin slice of potato, dipped in batter and deep fried, with no additional flavoring added except salt and vinegar. This type of “potato scallop” is also found in New Zealand fish and chip shops, however it is referred to as a potato fritter, not scallop. More commonly in New Zealand, a potato cake is made from either mashed or grated potato and is not covered in batter or deep fried. Hash browns, which are also widely available, are distinctly different. In Scotland what are known as potato cakes in Australia are known as potato fritters and are of the same type as the English variant. They are very common in fish and chip shops and are often the cheapest item on the menu.

The term may refer to a preparation of mashed potatoes baked in the form of pie or a scallop made using potatoes or potato flour.

 
Tattie scones

U.S. potato cake

Scottish tattie scones and Lancashire potato cakes are made from mashed or reconstituted potato and flour and baked on a griddle. They are typically served fried with breakfast or as a snack with butter or margarine, although they are often served with other toppings such as baked beans, scrambled eggs, garlic butter or tomato ketchup.

 

 

 

 
Irish potato cakes
Irish potato cakes are typically made from mashed potato and flour or baking soda, and are usually fried. This is not the same dish as boxty, because boxty is made using raw potatoes whereas potato cake is made using cooked potatoes. In Ireland, potato cakes are typically known as potato bread, or spud bread, and are served in traditional breakfasts along with soda bread and toast.

Burger Grilling……..

 
Most people pack the burger patties tight and then flatten them down too much. A loosely packed patty makes for one juicy hamburger! If you pack your burger patties too tight, you run the risk of drying out the meat and making them tough. One thing you should do is make a thumb imprint on top of pattie. The imprint will keep the burgers shape and it will disappear as the burger cooks. Get Grilling!

Chicken two ways……..

 
Boneless chicken pieces do well grilled quickly over direct heat, but bone-in pieces take longer and direct heat alone would burn them. Use indirect heat for bone-in pieces.

Though duck may take a back seat to chicken and turkey in most homes, duck is an impressive main course that can be surprisingly easy to prepare. From roasted whole duck to duck breast, duck is flavorsome and fairly rich so it requires a side dish of something tart or fruity, Don’t hesitate to dip it in a great sauce or start with an easy-to-mix rub recipe for raw duck.

Save time…….

 
To avoid soaking bamboo skewers each time you need them, soak a big batch once for an hour or so, drain, then freeze them in a plastic bag. When it’s time to grill, pull out as many skewers as you need.

Top 50 Grilling Recipes

Our best recipes for grilled salmon, grilled chicken, grilled pizza and more.

 

 

Thai Grilled Chicken with Sweet and Spicy Dipping Sauce
In this recipe for gai yang, or Thai grilled chicken, the chicken marinade is enriched with a little coconut milk, which keeps the meat moist during grilling. Prepare the sweet-and-spicy dipping sauce the day you want to use it, because it loses freshness quickly. If you prefer to use chicken breasts instead of thighs and drumsticks, use 3 bone-in breast halves and cut each in half crosswise for 6 servings total…….

 
Apricot-Chile Glazed Salmon
This healthy apricot-chile glazed salmon recipe marries fruit and chiles to make this easy grilled salmon mouthwateringly special. Use jam rather than preserves for a smoother, prettier glaze. Look for New Mexico chili powder in well-stocked supermarkets or online at Amazon.com, or substitute your favorite red chili powder…..

 
Pork Chops with Peach Barbecue Sauce
The tangy peach barbecue sauce that glazes these pork chops is incredible on grilled chicken or salmon as well. Bone-in pork chops (as opposed to boneless) are less likely to dry out. Just make sure to trim away as much fat as possible for healthier results…….
