  • 1/4 pound dried salt codfish
  • 6 potatoes, cooked, drained, and mashed
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup bread crumbs


Cook cod in water until it flakes well; rinse with fresh water several times and drain well. In mixer blend potatoes and fish. Add eggs and bread crumbs to form a proper consistency for making into balls. Chill overnight.

Form into balls (a #40 ice cream scoop works well) and cook until golden in 350 degrees fat. Drain on paper towels.
