On the Splendid Table yesterday they were talking about a french mashed potato pancake called (and I am going to butcher this spelling) Mantanfen. Does anyone have a recipe for this dish?

      I make something quite like those but without as much egg, and I have to say mine never looked as lovely as the photos. Recipe bookmarked, thanks!

      Yes, I heard it too. it was Dorie Greenspan (I love her voice). I thought they'd make a wonderful alternative to boxty which I can never make as good as my Irish MIL can.

        Yes, I'm afraid mine come out more boxty-ish, not that that's a bad thing.
