Potato bread farls are pan fried to make one of the essential components of an Ulster fry. They taste great on their own with a little salt, or with a fried egg on top.

A staple in our family for generations. I make them for my own children all the time. The only change I would make is to fry them in sunflower oil. Olive oil does add anything to the taste. They must be served with bacon sausage fried egg mushroom tomato and fried soda farls. An Ulster fry is a heart attack on a plate but eaten once in a while is a wonderful treat and a taste of home.

This recipe reminds me of a recipe for a cake which involves getting a cake mix and following directions on the back of the box. Perhaps a recipe for Fried Chicken: Go to KFC and get a bucket; bring home; eat! Read More

I made this & Soda Farls for Ferg's Ulster Fry Up (on this recipes site). I preferred the Potato Farl. Try this simple recipe especially as part of the Fry Up! Read More

This is the best recipe ever. I never did understand the instructions on a packet in pre-bought farls. Calling it a recipe is like an epiphany moment for me - it now all makes sense. 5 Michelin stars for Ita! Read More
