- Step 1: In a large bowl, combine the grated raw potatoes, mashed cooked potatoes, flour, milk, egg, and salt. Mix until well combined.
- Step 2: Heat a large skillet over medium heat and melt 1 tablespoon of butter. Scoop about 1/4 cup of the potato mixture onto the skillet and flatten it into a pancake shape. Cook for about 4-5 minutes on each side, until golden brown and crispy. Repeat with the remaining potato mixture, adding more butter and oil to the skillet as needed.
- Step 3: Serve the boxty pancakes hot with your choice of toppings, such as sour cream, chives, or smoked salmon.
