We love this Irish Boxty (aka potato cake) recipe! They are quick and easy to prepare and so tasty. Mixing mashed and grated potatoes adds a different texture. Onion adds a pop of flavor that we really liked. There is plenty of ingredients in these patties to hold them together while frying. This is a great recipe for a beginner cook. It's a simple side dish or snack.

1.  Set half of the potatoes aside for later. Peel and cut remaining potatoes into large chunks; place in a saucepan. Cover with cold water and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low and cook 15-20 minutes, or until tender.
2.  Drain and place in a large bowl. Mash potatoes and set the bowl aside.
3.  Now peel and grate reserved potatoes. Stir them into the mashed potatoes.
4.  Add onion, flour, salt, and pepper; mix well. Stir in milk and egg to form a batter.
5.  In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Drop batter from a tablespoon into the hot oil.
6.  Cook 3-4 minutes on each side.
7.  Drain on a paper towel.
8.  Transfer to your serving dish and serve with applesauce and sour cream. Bet you can't eat just one!
