Boxty recipe

A traditional Irish dish that is perfect for Thanksgiving leftovers, this potato pancake can be whipped up for a hearty brunch or served as an easy and filling dinner. As the traditional Irish saying goes "Boxty on the griddle, boxty on the pan, if you can't bake boxty, sure you'll never get a man."


  • 1 c. grated raw potatoes
  • 1 c. leftover mashed potatoes
  • 1 c. all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 c. milk
  • butter or olive oil for frying


  1. In large bowl combine flour, baking powder and salt. Stir in grated raw potato, mashed potato and eggs until combined. Slowly add milk to create a batter.

  2. Heat large heavy-bottomed skillet and melt 1-2 tbsp butter. Drop tablespoons of the mixture into the pan and cook over medium heat until browned on both side, approximately 4 minutes per side.

  3. Serve hot.
