Boxty (Potato Griddle Cakes)

Boxty (Potato Griddle Cakes)
  • 1/2 lb. raw potato
  • 1/2 lb. mashed potato
  • 1/2 lb. flour
  • milk (enough to make a batter)
  • 1 egg
  • Salt and pepper to taste

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 by tablespoonfuls onto a hot griddle or frying pan. Cook over a moderate heat for 3-4 minutes on each side. Serve with a tart apple sauce: or sausage links, fried eggs, fried bread pudding, fried soda bread ... and beans, too, if you like beans.
