Boxty With Salmon

Fire the Griddle For Irish Potato Pancakes

Boxty, an Irish potato pancake that translates to "poor-house bread," is like a cross between an American pancake and hashed browns. While it can be served at any meal, including dinner, I think American palates will appreciate it most for weekend brunch. Try topping it with smoked salmon, crème fraîche, and dill fronds to make it a complete meal.

Take a look at the recipe.
