This authentic version of the Irish potato dish called boxty is like a trip to the Emerald Isle in a skillet. Serve these little potato pancakes with any main dish and enjoy their crispness and great flavor!
What You'll Need:
- 1 pound raw potatoes
- 1 onion, peeled and finely chopped
- 3/4 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
What To Do:
- Set half of potatoes aside. Cut remaining potatoes into large chunks and place in a large saucepan. Cover with cold water and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low and cook 15 to 20 minutes, or until potatoes are tender. Drain and place in a large bowl. Mash with a potato masher or electric mixer; set aside.
- Grate reserved potatoes and stir into mashed potatoes. Add onion, flour, salt, and pepper; mix until well combined. Stir in egg and milk to form a batter.
- In a large skillet, heat vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Drop batter by tablespoonfuls into hot oil, and cook 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Drain on a paper towel-lined platter.
You may need to add additional milk to the batter if it seems too thick. It should be the consistency of thick pancake batter.
