Growing up I remember that my nan and my mum always had a love of sharing great food with us, an expression of love.
Certain things my nan made remind me of her to this day. Her amazing vegetable soup, fantastic pancakes and her boxty reminds me of St Patricks day.
I wasn’t cute enough to get the recipe from her while she was alive but I’ll try to get as close as I can. They were thick and fluffy and full of potatoey goodness.
I know she used mashed potato and grated potato in her recipe so that’s where I started
My Boxty Recipe
Makes – 8 - 10
Total Time – 30 minutes
2 cups leftover mashed potatoes
2 cups grated raw potato (peeled)

Happy St Patricks day and I hope you enjoy the Boxty and a Very Happy Mothers Day to all those women we love and learn from
