  • 800g floury potatoes, diced
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 50g Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 150g cavolo nero, finely shredded
  • 2 tbsp flour


  1. Boil the potatoes for 10 minutes or until tender. Drain and return to the pan. Mash well and season.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the onion for 3-4 minutes until golden. Stir into the mashed potato with the Parmesan.
  3. Allow to cool. Steam the cavolo nero for 4 minutes and stir into the potato.
  4. When just cold enough to handle, stir in the flour and mould into 8 rounds. Shallow fry in 2 batches for 1-2 minutes on each side or until golden and heated through.
  5. Serve with grilled bacon and salsa.
