A reader sent us this recipe for her twist on potato pancakes. Matzo meal, easy to find around Passover, makes them nice and crisp. Karen Bernhardt Toolan of Clifford Township, Pennsylvania, says, "These are great as a side at dinner, with fried eggs for breakfast, or as an appetizer with sour cream for dipping."
Traditional Irish potato pancakes, also known as boxty, are made with a mixture of mashed and grated potatoes for a texture that's part pancake, part hash brown. Serve with Irish Bangers and Sauteed Swiss Chard for a complete St. Patrick's Day meal.
