Boxty n’ Sausage

Sometimes, Sundays are required to have hearty, not-so-healthy, delicious breakfasts. This is a favourite and is super easy to make. In Ireland, Boxty is such a large part of their culture, there have been poems created about the dish. It is a type of potato pancake and is great for dinner or breakfast. With maple syrup, sour cream and green onions, or even ketchup and hot sauce.

Boxty on the griddle,
and boxty on the pan,
The wee one in the middle,
Is for Mary Ann.

Boxy on the griddle,
Boxty on the pan,
If you can’t bake boxty,
Sure you’ll never get a man.

1lb of peeled potatoes
1/4 tsp of baking powder
1 cup of flour
1 cup of buttermilk

Boil half of the potatoes and when soft, mash them. The other half can be grated. Add both together into a mixing bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix.

Cook your sausages. I cook mine in the oven.

Get out your frying pan and melt in some butter. Pour in the batter, as if you’re making pancakes. make whatever size you want but don’t make them too thick. Flip them after 3-5 minutes. When it is browning and the batter is half way cooked through.

Serve with your favourite toppings and serve right away with your sausages!

Done! Enjoy!
