Traditional Irish Fadge Recipe


Are you looking for something good that is authentic Irish to serve on St. Patrick’s Day? Traditional Irish Fadge is a time-honored Irish potato bread that is fried in butter. In this recipe, to save time, the potatoes are microwaved until tender; they are then quickly mixed with butter, salt and enough flour to either roll or pat out. Sometimes the more simple a recipe, the better it tastes in the end, and that applies to this fadge.

I like to serve fadge with bacon and fried eggs. It’s also good with Irish sausages or ham. Fadge is also good as an accompaniment to soups or salads – it’s the ultimate quick bread.

If you’re inclined to go all out and prepare a full Irish breakfast, Fadge is perfect – it can be added in addition to or instead of Irish soda bread.

8 Servings

1 pound potatoes, Idaho or russet work well as opposed to waxy potatoes

1/4 cup softened butter (preferably Irish)
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 to 1 cup flour

2 tablespoons butter, for frying
  1. Wash the potatoes, poke them with a fork in several places, and place them on a microwave-safe plate; microwave until tender.
  2. Remove the potatoes from the oven, and, using a potholder to hold the hot potatoes, peel them with a sharp knife.
  3. Mash the potatoes, add the butter and salt, and mix in enough flour to make the mixture stiff enough to roll.
  4. Transfer to a floured surface.
  5. Divide the dough into two pieces and roll each to a circle 8-9" in diameter and 1/4" thick; cut the circle into quarters.
  6. Heat a griddle or non-stick skillet over medium heat; add 1 tablespoon butter and add four of the quarters.
  7. Let cook until golden brown on the bottoms; turn and let cook on the other side until golden brown and cooked through. Serve immediately with extra butter.
