    breezermom's Note:

    This recipe is a bit different from most of the Boxty recipes posted doesn't contain mashed potatoes, just the fresh grated ones. Boxty are traditionally served for Halloween in Northern Ireland. Make sure you use a well seasoned skillet (cast iron is best) so the potato cakes don't stick. Prep time assumes you are grating your potatoes by hand....use a food processor or buy prepackaged shredded potatoes to save time. Cooking time is based on 4 pancakes in the skillet at a time. If you are just cooking 4 pancakes, estimate 10 minutes of cooking time....5 minutes per side. :)
