  • Mix the cold potato, Brussels, leek and egg yolk together well.
  • Add salt and pepper, the mixture should be quite dry and firm.
  • Mould into 4 cakes do not make them too thin or its difficult to turn them over when cooking.
  • Heat the veg oil in a frying pan, flour on both sides and carefully lay in the 4 bubbles, cook nice and slowly until golden and then flip over with a fish slice or pallette knife, cook for a further 5-6 minutes.
  • Serve warm topped with a poached egg and pickled walnuts.
