Potatoes really are the gift that keeps on giving!

While we’ve all tried our hand at chips, wedges and roasties, there are a whole array of more elusive methods for preparing the tasty potato and we think we’ve found a new favourite.

Bord Bia and are helping us discover just how versatile this vegetable is, with over 200 recipes on their mouth-watering website ranging from croquettes to this incredible canapé!

An ideal side for a family meal or the perfect snack to serve at this year’s Christmas gathering, grab some spuds and give these Canapé Puffed Potatoes a whirl...



  • 2 large Rooster potatoes
  • 45ml of egg white (1 large egg white)
  • 55g of cornflour (5 tbsp)
  • Vegetable oil for deep frying
  • Fine sea salt
  • To serve: cream cheese or mayo, any herbs, paprika or crispy onions


  • Preheat a deep fat fryer or a deep-frying pan on a high heat
  • Mix the egg whites and cornflour together to make a paste
  • Peel and slice potatoes with a mandolin or sharp knife
  • Lay the slices between cloths to dry them out
  • Once dry, brush each slice with the paste and lay one slice on top of another to create double the thickness, with the paste sandwiched between the two
  • Cut each double layer with a 5cm ring cutter or into squares with a sharp knife to create 20 in total and place the discs onto grease-proof paper
  • Fry the potato discs in hot oil for roughly 20 seconds, then flip them over and cook for another 20 seconds until golden brown and puffed up
  • Set aside on kitchen paper and season with fine salt
  • To serve, pierce the bottom of each canapé puffed potato using the tip of a sharp knife and pipe in the filling of your choice - we recommend mayo or cream cheese. Then, sprinkle the top of each canapé puffed potato with any herbs, paprika, crispy onions, more sea salt and enjoy!
