Boxty (Irish Griddle Cakes)
by: Alden Smith
Being of the Irish persuasion, I offer this great recipe for Boxty. Boxty is a traditional Irish dish, and has been around for many a year. I especially like this dish with butter and a dollop of maple syrup for my breakfast. I do not have the usual "required" nutritional evaluation, but in my way of thinking, I can live without it to just have the pleasure of enjoying this fine old traditional side dish.

Boxty (Irish Potato Griddle Cakes)

8 Servings (Halve this recipe for smaller families)
1/2 lb raw potato
1/2 lb potato,mashed
1/2 lb all-purpose flour
1 Milk
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
as part of an Ulster Fry, with fried bacon, fried sausage, fried eggs,
fried black pudding, fried bread, fried soda bread.

An old poem says: . Boxty on the griddle, boxty in the pan, if you can't make boxty,
you'll never get a man. (The accuracy of the poem is uncertain.)
