Potato croquettes

Contributed By: LR


2 cups mashed potatoes
(Potatoes should be boiled, mashed, mixed with butter, salt,
pepper and enough milk to moisten.)
2 large eggs
4 tablespoons flour
2 cup bread crumbs, made from fresh bread
1/2 cup bacon grease


Lightly beat one of the eggs. Stir the egg into the mashed
potatoes. Mix thoroughly. Shape the potato mixture into 8 balls,
lightly flattened. Cover and chill in the ice box.
Beat the other egg lightly. Dip the chilled potato balls into
the flour; shake off the excess, then dip into the beaten egg
and then roll in the bread crumbs. Place on waxed paper.
Heat the bacon grease. Add some potato balls and cook until
nicely browned on first side. Turn and brown on the second side.
Keep warm in the oven until all the croquettes have been cooked.
Serve immediately.
