Potato Recipes

These old fashioned recipes have been lifted from cookery books from around 100 years ago. They are the tastiest (and easiest) ones I could find!


Mashed potato
1/2 tsp. celery salt
1 egg

To the mashed potato, add the celery salt. Separate the egg, beat the yolk, and mix it with the potato. Beat the white stiff and fold it into the potato last. Pile into a buttered baking dish, set in a hot oven, and bake until the potato is thoroughly heated through and the surface is brown. Serve at once.

1 tablespoon melted butter
