Irish Boxty (Crispy Fried Potato Cakes) Recipe @pinch

We loved this Irish Boxty (aka potato cake) recipe! They are quick and easy to prepare and so tasty. Mixing mashed and grated potatoes adds a different texture. Onion adds a pop of flavor that we really liked. There is plenty of ingredients in these patties to hold them together while frying. This is a great recipe for a beginner cook. It is a simple side dish or snack. From my (South Side Chicago) Irish friend, Coleen. I received most of her recipes in the late '90s. She has given me some really great authentic ones. She left Ireland in 1940. I will be putting more of them on Just A Pinch soon.
