Mushrooms sauteed in butter with salt.

Half of a plum tomato, fried lightly in butter.

Pork sausage links, fried

Black pudding (aka blood sausage) - buy online

Clootie dumpling (like a thin slice of fruitcake, lightly fried)

Coffee or tea

      The Recipe

To make Scottish scones (flat potato cakes):

1 pound Russett-style potatoes, peeled, cooked and mashed

2 tablespoons butter

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon sugar

1 egg

1/2 cup flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

In a medium bowl, mix together mashed potatoes with all ingredients.  On a floured surface, roll out to 1/2" thickness.  Cut into four wedges and fry in butter five minutes on each side, or until golden.
