 Ingredients List

  • 1 c Raw grated potatoes
  • 1 c Leftover mashed potatoes
  • 2 ts Baking powder
  • 2 ts Salt
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1/4 c Milk, to bind (more or less)


Squeeze grated raw potatoes in cheese cloth to remove as much moisture
as possible. Sift flour with salt and baking powder. Mix all potatoes with
dry ingreds. and add beaten eggs. Mix well, and add sufficient milk to make
batter. Drop by tablespoons onto hot buttered frying pan and cook over
moderate heat until browned (4 min. per side.) Serve hot and well buttered
with or without sugar.
NOTE: Boxty is the traditional Irish fare for Shrove Tuesday. Composed
of grated raw potatoes, mashed cooked potatoes, with flour added as a
binding agent, Boxty is either fried in a pan or browned on a griddle. It
is mentioned in a traditional children's Irish jingle:

"Three pans of boxty, baking all the day,
What use is boxty without a cup of tay?"
