Rub the potatoes through a sieve or mash them smoothly. Put the butter
into a saucepan, and, when melted, season with pepper and salt; put in
the potatoes and turn them about till hot through. Drop in the egg and
mix into a paste, turn on to a plate to cool, and roll into balls. Beat

wanted for other purposes.

Other Recipes


Pare very thin, medium potatoes as near a size as possible. Have ready a
pot of boiling water, salted, drop in the potatoes and keep them at a
quick boil until tender. Serve with a batter made by beating to a cream
two tablespoons of butter, one-half tablespoon of lemon juice and one
tablespoon of finely minced parsley; add salt and a dash of cayenne
pepper; spread over the hot potatoes, and it will melt into a delicious
dressing. This is especially nice to serve with fish.

Other Recipes


Boil until tender, 8 medium-sized (not pared) potatoes; when quite
cold remove parings and grate them; fry one finely-chopped onion in a
little butter until a yellow-brown; add this, also 1 egg, to the
potatoes, season with salt and pepper and add flour enough to mold
into balls; use only flour enough to hold the mixture together. The
chopped onion may be omitted, and instead, brown small, dice-like
pieces of bread in a little butter, shape dumplings into balls the
size of walnuts, place a teaspoonful of the browned bread crumbs in
the centre of each and add also a little chopped parsley. Drop the
dumplings in salted boiling water and cook uncovered from 15 to 20
minutes. When dumplings rise to the top they should be cooked
sufficiently, when remove from kettle with a skimmer to a platter; cut
dumplings in half and strew over them bread crumbs, browned in butter.
