    DeSouter's Note:

    An old poem about this fried bread says: Boxty on the griddle, boxty in the pan, if you can't make boxty, you'll never get a man. Serve with a tart apple sauce: or as part of an Ulster Fry, with fried bacon, fried sausage, fried eggs, fried black pudding, fried bread, fried soda bread. Best fried in baking drippings.

      These were good!! I doubled the recipe except for the flour. When I weighed the 1 pound out it looked like an awful lot...I added about a 1/2 of a pound along with a small onion that I grated. The mashed potatoes I used were already mixed with butter, milk, salt and pepper. I fried these in a little oil in a frying pan and then put them in a warm oven on a cookie sheet to keep them warm as I made the rest. I would definitely make these again. They reminded me of the Polish potato Pierogi but with a lot less work! Thanks!!

      Simple and good! I even threw in some leftover mashed turnips. These will be nice and easy as part of a big weekend brunch at our house.

      I used to have pancakes like this as a kid at a restaurant and I could never find a recipe close to them. This is it! They were as wonderful as I remember, I love them with applesauce or sour cream. Thanks!!!!
