St Patty's day is almost here. Last week I made the Shamrock Shake Cupcakes, because I was getting the Irish itch. This weekend, while visiting my best friend in Michigan, we decided to make an Irish meal and invited some of her friends over to share it with us.
After contemplating a few options, we decided on Boxty with a chicken and mushroom filling. For sides, we didn't want to do anything complicated, so we served Spiced Apples and Parmesan Roasted Asparagus. And, dessert? Oh boy... we did individual Chocolate Stout Cakes (for which I'll post the recipe tomorrow). DE-licious!!
The Boxties were awesome. They weren't as filling and heavy as we thought they would be...which was good and bad. Bad, because we only made enough for one per person. Good, because everyone didn't end up with full stomach-aches and had room for their yummy dessert!
Boxty can be served flat like a pancake with the filling stacked on top, or they can have a filled effect by just folding it over. We chose the filled option.
