I took a trip to Ireland November 2011. I picked up this cookbook called A taste of Killarney, compiled by Jane Bergin. This recipe is from Bricin's, chef Paddy McGuire. 1/3 recipe made 8 nice sized pancakes.

How To Make bricin's boxty

  • 1
    Grate potatoes, place in a large piece of muslin and squeeze dry (don't squeeze potatoes too dry.)
  • 2
    Chop onion very fine, add to potatoes and mix well.
  • 3
    Beat the eggs and add the seasonings. Mix well through the 'spuds'.
  • 4
    Turn the griddle to 300F or heat a heavy frying pan. Using melted butter, grease the pan and drop in a little of the mix to make a tester and check for seasonings.
  • 5
    To make a full boxty, drop in a good spoonful and pat gently using the back of the spoon until the mix resembles a pancake. Cook gently on each side for at least 3 minutes or until golden brown and tender.

    Chefs note: Boxty can be served with almost anything. As an accompaniment to a main meal or filled with fish, meat or vegetables and sauce. The Germans make a bosti that is very similar and serve it with pureed apple that is quite delicious.
