Boxties are Irish potato cakes, made of fresh potatoes and leftover mashed potatoes. It is similar to hash browns. Cheese, sausages or ham can be added as well to give this dish a little flair.
1 cup raw, grated potatoes
1 cup leftover mashed potatoes
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons salt
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/4 cup milk or half and half
2 tablespoons butter
Place the raw grated potatoes on a cheese cloth and squeeze out the excess water.
In a bowl, combine the salt, flour and baking powder. After, mix in the eggs, raw potatoes and mashed potatoes to form a batter.
In a skillet under medium heat, melt the butter. Fry the batter in the pan until both sides are brown. Let it cool for 5 minutes. Cut it into wedges and serve.
