|Pooka's Invented Recipe #1

Mmmkay. Well, during my three years at uni, I tended to invent meals as and when required. Some of them went down well, some not-so-well, most were pretty good but I've never tried them again, and all are 100% vegetarian.|
Here's one of the best:
Potato Burger Indulgence
This is something to be made for a main meal. It's quick and easy to eat but having it as a snack might be a little too much. It's quite high in fat so I wouldn't make it 'just because'.
It's something that you'll want to make when somebody's making mashed or roast potatoes because it contains potato peel and you don't want to go peeling potatoes only to realise you don't want the potatoes inside.
- A sizeable amount of potato peel
- Two slices of crusty white bread (preferably the end pieces)
- Olive or vegetable oil (preferably olive)
- Salt and/or black pepper
- Mayonnaise or burger sauce (depending on your taste)
- Fresh green salad
1. Use a cheese grater to grate the potato peel into a small bowl. You want to collect all the potato peelings you can, and if there's any actual potato left, do that too. What you need to have, essentially, is a bowl full of small shavings of potato peel.
2. Add a little olive oil to the frying pan and tip all the potato peelings in. Fry the peelings, turning them over ad-hoc. While you are doing this, sprinkle a pinch of salt over them.
3. Optional! Add a crumbled stock cube or black pepper during frying, depending on how you like your taste.
4. Once the potato peel looks like it has begun to cook, assemble it with your frying tool in the middle of the frying pan. Add a little margarine and fry it in that, patting it down so that it looks like a burger. (It won't stick together, but the shape is the important thing.)
5. Optional! Add a little cheese to the top of the burger. You may also, if you wish, add breadcrumbs, to make it more like a hash brown.
6. Once the potato-burger thingy looks cooked and done enough, spread mayonnaise or burger sauce on one side of both slices of bread.
7. Get a large plate, place one slice of bread on it, mayonnaise side up. Using a flat scraper thingy, pick the potato-burger up and place it squarely in the middle of the bread. (If it falls apart, reassemble it inside the bread.)
8. Place the other slice of bread, mayonnaise side down, on top of it. Serve the green salad on the side and eat it immediately while it's still hot. It's preferable to have plain water to drink on the side.
