Potato Croquettes


  • 2 pounds of potatoes
  • 2 ounces of butter
  • 2 eggs
  • pepper and salt
  • some white bread-crumbs


Boil the potatoes, and rub them through a wire sieve.

Mash them well with the butter, pepper, and salt.

Mix in one egg, well beaten.

Flour the hands very slightly, and form the mixture in balls, or any other shape preferred.

Brush them over with beaten egg, and cover them with crumbs.

Slightly mould them again when the crumbs are on them.

Fry in a frying-basket, in hot fat (see French Frying).

Garnish with fried parsley.
