This is the photo from the book because I changed my meal plan at the last minute on Saturday, so didn't cook these after all...please let me know how you get on with this recipe xx


  1. Thanks Mandy, they sound absolutely delicious! I had thought they'd probably be a mixture of mashed potato, flour and bacon, but these sound much nicer, especially with the cheese, ketchup and Worcester sauce. I'll definitely be making these sometime, thanks again.

    1. You do expect mash, like fish cakes. I do intend to make them another week xx

  2. These sound amazing, I think I will be making some to have with vegetable and bean soup, later this week.
