I think we all can agree that Potatoes are a very important staple in an Irish Household. Anyone familiar with History can retell the horrors that struck Ireland in 1845 during the Potato Famine. With out this Main crop as a source of food and income tens of thousands of Irish families fled the island. I think we can all count ourselves lucky that we don’t have to worry about a fungus that killed the potatoes. So now we can enjoy mashed potatoes, baked potatoes, gnocchi, potato skins, hash browns, french fries, and most importantly we can have Irish Potato Cakes!
These potato cakes can be served savory or they can be served the traditional way with butter and sugar not unlike our pancakes. Breakfast, lunch, or Tea are a perfect time to serve these.
I love how dense they are and seasoned properly they are an amazing side dish. A fun twist from the same ole boring baked potato!
