Recipe by: Natasha Marais (@dinewithtasha)

1. Peel and dice 4 potatoes until soft. Add the Kerrygold butter, milk, salt and pepper, then use a potato masher to combine all the ingredients. Set aside.

2. Peel and grate the other 4 potatoes. Place in a cheesecloth and squeeze to get rid of all the liquid.

3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder. Give it a whisk while adding the buttermilk, egg, Kerrygold butter and Kerrygold Vintage Cheddar and, finally, both the mash and grated potatoes.

4. Combine well then let the batter rest for 20 minutes.

5. Drop a small ladleful (about 1/4 cup) at a time into an oiled non-stick pan over medium/low heat. Cook for about 7 minutes a side until golden, then flip and cook for a further 7 minutes on the other side. Use a large pan to make a few at the same time. Keep them warm in the oven while finishing off the batch.

6. It is important not to have your pan too hot, the boxty needs to cook slowly over medium/low heat.

7. Traditionally served for breakfast, so feel free to add bacon and eggs to these! Stack them and serve with a dollop of sour cream and chives. Enjoy!
