This is my take on a Nigella Lawson recipe (which you can find here). It was my idea to add the goat's cheese. Typically I also change the potato to sweet potato, which plays very nicely with the goat's cheese and smoked salmon, making the whole thing more complex in flavor. But, I couldn't get sweet potato mix this time, so I made them more traditionally.
That's right, I said mix. Nigella's brilliant idea is to make the whole ordeal simpler and faster by using potato flakes. You know, that stuff that people make awful mashed potatoes out of? I was skeptical at first too, but it actually makes for a great textured pancake.
