  • Heat a large frying pan and add the oil.
  • Mix the potato with a little salt and pepper.
  • Place 4 piles of potato strips into the frying pan and spread out with a fork, so nice and even.
  • Cook for 3-4 minutes until the edges start to brown, then carefully turn over and cook for a further 4-5 minutes nice and gently. Once cooked remove and drain well.
  • Repeat the process so you end up with 8 small potato cakes, nice thin and crispy.
  • Spread a little peanut or normal butter on all 8 pieces of toasted bun.
  • Place 4 potato cakes on the base of 4 buns.
  • Top each bun with 2 slices of bacon and a little spread of marmalade.
  • Top with the last 4 reaming potato cakes, then the top of the bun.
  • Serve warm.
