Potato Croquettes


  • 1 pint of hot mashed potatoes
  • 1 tablespoonful of butter
  • 1/2 teaspoonful of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoonful onion juice
  • yolk of 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoonful of chopped parsley
  • bread crumbs


Prepare the mashed potatoes seasoned with the butter, salt, onion juice. Beat all together until very light, and when slightly cool add the yolk. Mix well and put through a sieve to be sure there are no lumps, as it is almost impossible to get them out by mashing the potato. Add the parsley. Shape into smooth round balls. Roll them in bread crumbs, then dip into beaten egg, then roll them in crumbs again. Fry in smoking hot lard one minute, drain on soft paper and serve in the form of a pyramid.
