Irish Boxty (potato pancakes)

There is an old Irish quote “Boxty on the griddle, boxty on the pan; if you can’t make boxty, you’ll never get a man’.” While the old quote makes me cringe, I do have to admit that the potato pancakes are amazingly yummy. I can’t confirm that this is some kind of magic charm for grabbing a man though. (Also maybe he can make them for you!)

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups grated raw potatoes
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup leftover mashed potatoes
1 egg
1 tablespoon whole milk
1/4 cup olive oil

3/4 cup of Irish Cheddar cheese, grated
