Method

Take some floury potatoes, boil them in their skins. When cooked, mash them well and dry the purée thus obtained for a little while over the fire or in the oven (the less water the potato purée contains the more milk it will absorb and, therefore, the better it will be). Add, over the fire, butter and two or three yolks of eggs, mix well, remove from the fire and let it get almost cold. Cut in thin pieces more or less like a short sausage, roll in flour, and fry in deep boiling fat. Drain on paper, salt and serve.
