Patatas a lo Pobre Recipe from Las Tapas De Lola

Patatas a lo pobre comes in 1000s of guises in Spain. This is our favourite version. Being half-Irish
in Lola, it’s a match made in heaven – potato and black pudding. Perfect served directly to your
guests or delish the next day too after the oils have had time to seep through the spuds.
Serves 8+

careful not to overcook this mixture.
