In honor of our many Irish neighbors in Sunnyside and Woodside I found this recipe for boxty.   I don’t know how traditional this is, but maybe someone can share their own recipe? – Jessica

1/2 lb Potatoes, peeled, boiled and mashed
1/2 lb Potatoes, peeled, finely grated and squeezed dry
3/4 cup Flour
1 Egg, beaten
1/2 cup Milk
Salt and pepper, to taste
Oil for frying

1. Mix the potatoes, flour, egg, milk, salt and pepper together well in a large bowl.

2. Heat a generous amount of oil in a skillet or sauté pan. Drop about 2 tablespoons of batter at a time into the hot oil and spread out into a round about 1/2-inch thick. Fry until underside browns, then flip and brown the other side.

3. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate and repeat with the rest of the batter. Finished boxty can be held in a warm oven until serving.
