Irish Boxty + Mushrooms + Whiskey Gravy

Many cultures offer potato pancakes, but the Irish Boxty is a true favorite! These potato pancakes are crispy, yet pliable, and packed with flavor.

Saint Patrick’s Day is just around the corner. Time to pull out your favorite Irish recipes!

We have certain traditions we keep for St. Paddy’s Day, our favorite being a lunch date at an irish pub.

MY OTHER RECIPES


Every year we venture out, covered in green and Notre Dame attire, to enjoy a hearty dose of celtic cheer and our favorite Irish dishes. We even take the kids on the years that St. Paddy’s Day is on the weekend.

Yes, I’m one of those parents who takes children into pubs. But only on special occasions… and if they have a good root beer on tap. *wink*

One of our most loved Irish dishes is the boxty. These potato pancakes are moist and tender on the inside, yet ultra crispy on the outside.

A boxty is a wonderful platform for your favorite fillings and can be served for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

I like to serve them with earthy sautéed mushrooms, then slather them with a rich whiskey gravy. The combination of the crisp buttery boxty crust and the soft mushrooms is something to experience. Kissed with Irish whiskey gravy, boxties are a meal that could stand up to any stout beer.

The potato pancakes are easy to make. Simply mix hash brown potatoes with eggs, cream, parmesan cheese, flour and chive.

Then while the potato pancakes are frying, sauté some mushrooms with a little thyme and sherry.

    Could these lovely boxy pancakes be made with something other than grain flour? I can no longer eat grains, but everthing else in the dish is wonderful. Could I use a nut or seed flour and still have them bendable?
