¼ pound haricot bean pulp. 2 ounces bread crumbs. ¼ pound mashed potatoes. 1 shalot. 1 egg. ½ teaspoon salt. Bread crumbs.
Rub well-cooked haricots through a wire sieve until the requisite quantity of pulp is obtained, add the bread crumbs, potato, salt and shalot, which must be very finely minced, stir in half a beaten egg, shape into little balls the size of marbles, roll them in the other half of egg and the bread crumbs, and fry in boiling fat until a golden brown.
