White Potato Croquettes


  • 4 medium sized potatoes
  • 1/2 cup of rich milk
  • 1 generous heaping tablespoonful of butter
  • pepper
  • salt
  • 1 egg
  • cracker crumbs


Boil the potatoes and mash very fine. Put the milk and butter in a saucepan over the fire. When the milk comes to a boil, stir in the mashed potatoes, season with pepper and salt to taste, mix thoroughly and add the white of the egg beaten to a stiff froth, remove from the fire, turn out on a plate to cool, then make up in small cylinders, dip in beaten egg, roll in cracker crumbs and fry a delicate brown in boiling fat.
