Traditional Norwegian Potato Cakes / Potetlomper

Before the American way of eating hot dogs, with the frankfurter in a bun reached Norway sometimes in the late fifties, it was potato cakes like these we wrapped around the sausages here. Some people still like to eat frankfurter in this way. Some even make a “special”, wrap the frankfurter in a potato cake and put it in a bun.

Boxty – Traditional Irish Potato Cakes / Tradisjonelle Irske Potetkaker

A traditional Irish recipe found on irishcentral.com
Boxty – Traditional Irish Potato Cakes / Tradisjonelle Irske Potetkaker

Traditional Irish potato cakes, or boxty, are mostly associated with the north midlands of Ireland in Connacht and Ulster. The people of Mayo, Sligo, Donegal, Fermanagh, Longford, Leitrim and Cavan are particularly big fans of this delicious and simple style of potatoes.

It is thought that boxty dates back to the days or the Irish famine, presumably to make the potatoes stretch further. There are a couple of different recipes, but all contain finely grated, raw potatoes served fried.

Over the last couple of years, as the Irish have become more interested in their own cuisine, the popularity of boxty has risen. It’s now quite normal to see boxty on a menu in a restaurant in Ireland, whereas a decade ago it would have still been considered a ‘peasant dish.’ However, boxty has always been popular as part of Irish home cooking as one traditional (if woefully out-dated) rhyme explains:

Boxty on the griddle,
Boxty in the pan,
If you can’t make boxty,
You’ll never get your man.

Maakouda – Traditional Moroccan Potato Patties / Tradisjonelle Marokkanske Potetkaker

A traditional North African potato recipe found on
then called food.about.com now called dotdash.com

Maakouda – Traditional Moroccan Potato Patties / Tradisjonelle Marokkanske Potetkaker

Pan-fried potato cakes (maakouda batata) are a much-loved street food in Morocco, but you’ll also find them prepared at home. This is a traditional version of the patties, made from a mixture of mashed potatoes, garlic, spices and herbs. Zesty seasoning makes all the difference, so don’t be afraid to taste as you go and add some cayenne pepper or notch up the garlic a bit.

Once the patties are shaped, they’re given a dip in egg and flour before heading for the oil. Some Moroccans will dip them in a fritter batter instead.
