Savoury Fritters

A Breakfast Dish.

3 ounces mashed potato. 2 ounces bread crumbs. 1 ounce vermicelli or semolina. 1 onion. ½ teaspoon mixed herbs. ½ teaspoon grated lemon rind. 1 teaspoon cream or little milk. 1 egg. 2 teaspoons minced parsley. ½ teaspoon salt. ½ teaspoon pepper. ½ ounce butter. 1 ounce butter for frying.

Peel the onion and boil it half an hour in salted water. Chop it very fine and mix with the other ingredients. Beat the egg, white and yolk separately, add to the mixture, stir well altogether, form into little balls, sausages, or flat cakes, and fry until nicely browned. They may be rolled in egg and bread crumbs and fried in oil if preferred.
