Old-Fashioned Potato Balls

From "The Suffrage Cookbook", compiled by Mrs. L. O. Kleber, 1915.

Two soup plates of grated potatoes which have been boiled in the skins the day before. Add four tablespoons flour or bread crumbs, a little nutmeg and salt, one-half cup of melted butter and the yolks of four eggs and one cupful croutons (fried bread—in butter—cut into small cubes).

Mix together, then add the beaten whites of the eggs. Mix well and form into balls, then boil in boiling salt water about fifteen or twenty minutes. Serve with bacon cut into small squares on top.

To be eaten with stewed dried fruits cooked together—prunes, apricots, apples.
