Croquets of Potatoes


  • potatoes
  • milk
  • peel of 1/2 lemon, finely grated
  • 1 lump of sugar
  • salt
  • yolk of egg
  • crumbs of bread


Boil some potatoes in water, strain them, and take sufficient milk to make them into a mash, rather thick; before you mix the potatoes put the peel, sugar, and a pinch of salt; strain the milk after heating it, and add the potatoes; mash them well together; let the mash cool; roll it into balls of the shape and size of an egg; let there be ten or twelve of them; brush them over with the yolk of egg, and roll them in crumbs of bread and a pinch of salt. Do this twice over; then fry them of a fine brown colour, and serve them with fried parsley round.
