Hi there, everyone. If your little ones adore potatoes, then you are in for a treat. Today, I am sharing a delicious and quick pancake recipe for those little tummies who need something yummy all the time. My little one’s preferences keep on changing but she loves potatoes. So these potato pancakes are absolutely perfect for her and for the rest of us. I just serve these with her favorite dipping sauce and a meal is covered.

I got the inspiration for these Potato Pancakes from Irish Boxty Pancakes. These are so easy to make and are quite a meal. They are filling and comforting. For me, it is comfort food and a good way to use up those leftover mashed potatoes. I like to have these pancakes with white gravy, absolutely YUM.

Traditionally, all-purpose flour is used in Boxty Pancakes. But I have used bread crumbs instead of flour. And to give it a more aromatic flair and taste, I have added rosemary and garlic to these pancakes. This gives them a real comfort food feel to it. These pancakes are a mixture of both hash browns and mashed. For potato lovers, it’s best of both worlds.
