Potato Croquettes


  • 2 cupfuls of well-seasoned mashed potatoes
  • beaten yolks of 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoonful of chopped parsley
  • 1 1/2 tablespoonfuls of butter (if none has been used in seasoning)
  • dash of cayenne and nutmeg
  • bread-crumbs


To the mashed potatoes add the beaten yolks, parsley, butter (if none has been used in seasoning), cayenne and nutmeg; stir over the fire until the potato leaves the sides of the pan. When cold, form it into small croquettes, roll them in egg and bread-crumbs and fry them in hot fat to an amber color. Serve on a napkin. The croquette mixture may be made into balls enclosing minced meat. When used in this way serve with it a white sauce.
