It is a type of potato pancake which is made by grating potatoes and mixing them with flour and oil until it forms a dough-type mixture.

It is then shallow fried like a pancake and eaten as part of a fried breakfast.

As with many other Irish dishes, there are several variations of the ingredients and methods of making Boxty. Some people choose to add milk, butter, onions or cheese to the mixture before cooking it. Some people also add cooked mashed potato to the mixture to help it hold together.

The grated potato mixture can also be boiled or baked as part of a main evening meal.
