This was excellent! We don't like mushrooms, so I substituted a chopped up broccoli cauliflower mix. Everything else was as posted.

Any Ideas of what we could substitute for the mushrooms? Sounds great but we don't do mushrooms and they appear to be a large part of the filling.

I enjoyed chicken mushroom boxty at a local restaurant and hoped to make it myself. This recipe was easy and delicious. I had no trouble with the potato pancake.

The filling is FANTASTIC! I had some trouble with the potato pancakes, but based on my past history of problems with actual pancakes, crepes, omelets, etc, that is probably just me. :) Delicious and very filling!
