  • 1/2 saltspoon of white pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt

  • a few drops of onion juice
  • some egg

Take mashed potatoes; season with soft butter, white pepper, salt, celery salt, onion juice, and some egg; mix well till light; rub through a strainer; return to the fire and stir till the potato cleaves the dish.

When cool, shape into balls, then into cylinders; roil in fine bread or cracker crumbs; dip in beaten egg, then in crumbs again, and fry brown in hot fat.
