2 tablespoons milk
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon chopped green onion
2 egg yolks, beaten
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
4 cups potatoes (half mashed & half shredded)
1 egg, beaten
Sifted dried bread crumbs
Peanut oil, enough to fill pan 1/2-inch
Add milk, salt, pepper, chopped onion, beaten egg yolks and flour to mix of the potatoes. Chill and then shape using an ice cream scoop. Dip in the beaten egg, then roll through bread crumbs. Fry each boxty in shallow oil until brown on all sides.
Cook's Note: Cook in small batches, giving each boxty at least 2 inches of space around it to not overcrowd the pan. This prevents the boxty from crumbling while frying.
