    Chef Kate's Note:

    Boxty is essentially potato cakes using both grated and mashed potatoes. The word comes from the Irish bac-stai, for the traditional cooking of potatoes on the hob (bac) over an open fire (stai.) Margaret Johnson ("The New Irish Table") gives this recipe for a boxty from a restaurant in Killarney, County Kerry, using only grated potatoes. She recommends serving it with bacon and cabbage or Irish stew.

      Pretty good! After reading the other reviews, I used the food processor with grater attachment, which I heartily encourage others to use-- so easy!! I would rather to use a sweet onion, and I would mince it rather than chop it next time. The nutmeg was interesting, and played very well with the pepper. It's worth a try with the nutmeg, but I'm not certain I'd use it again.

      A super and very authentic recipe for Boxty. I make mine with mashed potato or grated potato, and this recipe worked well with the latter method. I have never added nutmeg before, and I rather liked it - I used lots of black pepper, but not much salt, as I only has salted butter to hand. I was late making this for St Patrick's Day, but I never need an excuse to make this classic recipe - so, thanks Kate for posting a variation on a much loved Irish postao dish.......made for PRMR tag game. FT:-)
