Mum's potato pancake - a quick and filling dinner for two!

Here's an absolutely delightful recipe my Mum shared with me recently. It's cheap, it's easy and it's very filling - a perfect dinner for two after a long day at work! Both S and I were surprised how good it tasted, and we will definitely be making it again. This potato pancake is crispy on the outside and soft and fluffy in the middle, and the pizza-like topping is an explosion of flavours.

Ingredients for the potato pancake:
3 large or 4 medium potatoes
2 eggs
2 tablespoons of flour
1/2 tsp turmeric
Salt & pepper
Oil for frying

Ingredients for the topping:
You can use any combination of these - a great way to use fridge leftovers!
Bell pepper
Smoked sausage or ham
Grated cheese
A little oil or butter for frying

Grate the raw potatoes and transfer them, juice and all, into a bowl. Add all the other ingredients and mix well with a spoon.
Heat the oil in a large pan. Pour the pancake mixture onto the hot oil and fry on medium heat until the underside starts getting brown.
In a separate pan, heat some oil or butter and fry your selection of topping ingredients (all chopped small), except the cheese.
Flip the pancake using another frying pan or a large plate. Cover with the topping mix and sprinkle on some grated cheese. Cover and continue to cook until the cheese has melted. Cut in half and serve (I served it with the pickle I wrote about in the previous post). Delicious!
