Boxty, An authentic Irish recipe
•1/2 lb raw potatoes •1/2 lb mashed potatoes •1/2 lb plain flour •Milk •1 egg •Salt and pepper
Directions: 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.
