Forcemeat No. 77.
Take some large, evenly-shaped potatoes, peel and wipe dry, slice them
lengthways in pieces about one-eighth of an inch thick and lay in a
clean cloth to thoroughly dry. Place them in a frying basket, and fry
in boiling oil until they begin to change colour, then place them on
a piece of paper and put on one side to cool; place a thick layer of
forcemeat between two slices of potato in the form of a sandwich, tie
with white thread, and re-fry until the potato becomes a golden brown.
Remove the thread, and serve with sauces Nos. 172 or 177.
