Today, I’ve decided not to make my Slow Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage that I’ve made on St. Patrick’s Day in the past. I want to try something different, so I’m giving Boxty a try tonight at dinner.

Boxty is an Irish potato pancake made from mashed potatoes, grated raw potatoes, flour and milk. They can be made thicker or thinner to your preference, depending on the amount of milk used.

This video from Dublin’s Gallagher’s Boxty House shows how to make Irish Boxty. The measurements are given in grams. It’s difficult to do an exact conversion of grams to cups, but loosely, 226 grams is the equivalent of one cup.

Ghallager’s Boxty House is a restaurant in the Temple Bar section of Dublin, Ireland. Temple Bar is the trendy restaurant hub of the city. As my husband and I quickly learned in Dublin, most traditional pubs stop serving food around 8 or 9 p.m., but if you head to Temple Bar, you can get food until late in the evening.
