Estonian Potato Flat Bread with topping. Kartulipletskid täidisega

As I wrote last year,pletskid1 (6)  Pletskid is food from difficult and complicated times. Because of a lack of eggs and everything, children invented ” bread”, to get something to eat. They mixed potatoes, flour and oil and baked this on to the wood burning stove iron.

Now are better times and we can add toppings.

What topping? This is depending on your imagination, but I suggest one option 🙂
