Recipe: Golden Marbles

  •  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.
