Corned Beef Irish Potato Cakes

Unsurprisingly, Addie had St Patrick’s day in mind when she prepared these glorious looking Irish Potato Cakes. But, what separates these from the crowd is the corned beef. Addie sources hers from a local butcher but, if you are unable to do this, canned should work (though, as with most ingredients, fresh is best). Addie also suggests topping these with eggs…sunny-side up. I think I like that idea!

  • 4 cups peeled, large diced yukon gold potatoes (about 1 lb. potatoes)
  • 1/4 cup whole milk, heated
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoon melted unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup diced corned beef
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter (for cooking)
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped chives
