Here is one for you chaps and I am sure someone will know the answer, whilst serving in Roy Barracks, Ratingen, there were times when the MSO chaps that worked for me (mainly winter) would take a trip to the civilian canteen and bring back what I can only describe as little pancakes, they were about 6" across and seemed to me to be made with flour, potato and I think onion, would like to know what they were and how to make them, they were very tasty
cheers

The German equivalent of a "Tattie Scone" perhaps?

Basic ingrediants are

Plain flour
Mashed potato
Butter and salt

Cheese, onion or anything else that takes your fancy can be added to the mix.

A nice lump of Cholesteral Laughing

Sounds very close to it Gordon, I just can't for the life of me remember what they were called.
as for the sour cream hardrations, don't know about that, this is not a sweet dish but was certainly very popular amongst the MSO guys, eaten just as it was bounce bounce

Really... tbh cant say I'm surprised, seems to be the trend. It's always easier to trim the defence budget than political hot potatoes like health or welfare.

THe tattie scone quartered









Ingredients:
Half pound (225g) boiled and mashed potatoes
2.5oz (65g) flour
3 tablespoons melted butter
Half teaspoon salt

Method:
Mash the potatoes while they are still warm and add the butter and salt. Add in enough flour to make it a pliable dough but without making it too dry. The type of potato will affect this. Turn out onto a floured surface and roll until about quarter of an inch thick. Cut into six inch circles and then into quarters. Prick all over with a fork and cook in a heavy pan which has been lightly greased. Cook each side for about three minutes or until golden brown. If you want to really add the calories, put cheese between two scones and cook until the cheese has melted.

These do sound like the potato pancakes. They are still sold from the food stalls throughout
germany at fairs and festivals I used to have to grate the spuds For my wife as she fried them. The kids could eat
them quicker than she fried.

Now that sounds more like it, the reason I say that is I do remember the potato in the pancake being like little bits (not the sort of texture you would get if you did the same thing with mashed potato) Very Happy Very Happy
