Irish Zucchini and Potato Pancakes
These Irish Zucchini and Potato Pancakes take me right back to my childhood when my Irish grandmother used to make a traditional potato pancake called Boxty. Boxty is usually made from a mix of mashed potato and grated raw potato, similar to a latke. This take on boxty is my go-to recipe when I need to use up leftover mashed potato and although I usually make them as a side dish for lunch or dinner, sometimes I cook them for breakfast with a fried or poached egg.
To make these, I first mix mashed potatoes, flour, milk, egg, butter together with some sea salt. Then I stir in the cheese and zucchini before frying them in hot oil until golden on each side. I tend to make these in batches of 2-3 pancakes at a time.
