Boil the potatoes in salted water for 15 minutes until tender, drain, add half of the butter and mash well. Meanwhile cook the sprouts for 5 minutes until just tender, drain, cool and shake dry and shred finely.

Heat the remaining butter in a frying pan and fry the onion until just soft, cool slightly and add to the mashed potato.

Mix the sprouts with the turkey, potato and cooked onion and season to taste. Leave until cool enough to handle then shape into 8 cakes.

Tip the flour onto a plate, coat the cakes, and gently tap off the excess flour.

Heat a large frying pan and shallow fry the cake in rapeseed oil, do this in batches for 4 minutes each side, turning carefully.

Drain on kitchen paper and transfer to a baking sheet lined with greaseproof paper.

Serve with a little rocket and poached eggs.
