Boxty, An authentic Irish recipe

•1/2 lb raw potatoes
•1/2 lb mashed potatoes
•1/2 lb plain flour
•1 egg
•Salt and pepper
Grate raw potatoes  and mix with the cooked mashed potatoes. Add salt, pepper and flour. Beat egg and add to mixture with just enough milk to make a batter that will drop from a spoon. Drop a tablespoonful onto a hot griddle or frying pan.
Cook over medium heat for 3-4 minutes on each side.
***The recipe doesn’t say, but my mom used to make these and she called them potato cakes. Be sure and have some oil in your pan.
