Boxty is a traditional Irish potato pancake, perfect for serving on St. Patrick’s Day. We’ve added nitrite-free Better Naked Bacon, which is produced in Downpatrick, burial town of St. Patrick himself. ☘️
Start by cooking the streaky bacon until crispy. Finely chop half of the rashers, keeping the other half whole
Mix together the grated potato, mashed potatoes, egg, baking powder, salt, pepper, and chopped bacon.
Mix in the milk until it becomes a batter
Melt the butter in a non-stick pan. When it starts to foam, add 2 tbsp of the batter and smooth out into pancake shape.
Cook until golden on both sides, around 6-8 mins total
Repeat until all the mixture is gone.
Serve with the remaining bacon, poached eggs, and chives.
