Does March come in like a lion, and out like a lamb? Or does it come in like a lamb and go out like a lion? I always get those two mixed up. Kind of like starve a cold and feed a fever, or feed a fever and starve a cold? I’m never quite sure. But what I am sure about is how delicious this Irish corned beef boxty is. 

 It’s been such a brutal winter for almost the entire country with record-breaking freezing temperatures to record-breaking snowfall. Is this now what winter is destined to be? I sure do hope not!

However, two things you can always count on of from the month of March is that college basketball takes center stage, and anyone and everyone seems to be talking brackets (except me). And that St. Patrick’s Day is always March 17th, and anyone and everyone turns Irish on that one day a year (me included)! Yay for the Irish Corned Beef Boxty!

Making an Irish corned beef boxty is easy. Let me show you how.

In a large bowl mix the mashed potatoes and horseradish.

Grate 2 cups of Idaho potatoes (I leave the skin on), and dry them in a clean towel by squeezing out all the moisture.

Irish Boxty

Add the dried grated potatoes into the bowl with the mashed potatoes. Stir in flour, baking powder, salt, pepper. Mix Well. In a small bowl whisk together eggs and milk. Add the egg and milk into the potato mixture.

Stir well to form a creamy, thick pancake batter consistency.

Add oil to a large skillet and drop enough batter into the skillet to form a 6″ pancake which is approximately ¼” thick. Cook until browned on one side.

Use a spatula to flip the plain half of the pancake over the filled half. Cover the skillet loosely and cook until the cheese has melted.
