  • Summary

    Boxty (pronouced box-tee) is an Irish potato pancake that has the best of both worlds- it is both deliciously fluffy and crispy. This traditional dish is typically made with white potatoes, but by subbing sweet potatoes, you'll reap more nutritious benefits. The swap will add significantly more Vitamin A and calcium, and cut a few calories than using regular potatoes. I used 2 dark orange sweet potatoes and 1 yellow sweet potato for fun. Add a touch of crème fraiche when it's ready and you have yourself a crowd-pleasing and kid-friendly side dish. Don't get pinched this year... Add some greens by topping with chives or green onions. Enjoy your Sweet Potato Boxty.
