Mix the potatoes thoroughly with the butter, onion, parsley, salt, pepper and nutmeg. Mold them; dip in the beaten eggs; roll in bread crumbs; drop into hot fat and cook until a golden brown.
Take cold mashed potatoes or cold baked or boiled potatoes that have been mashed and seasoned; roll into balls, dusting the hands well with flour first. Flatten into cakes and saute in butter, or place on a buttered tin with a small piece of butter on the top of each and bake in a hot oven until golden brown.

2 cups cold potatoes Salt and pepper
2 cups cream sauce 1 cup bread crumbs

Either sweet or white potatoes may be browned. Boil and peel them, cutting them in halves if they are very large. Put them in a baking pan; baste with savory drippings or butter and season with salt. Cook in a hot oven until brown.
The potatoes may be browned in a frying pan over the fire if the oven is not hot. The oven, however, is to be preferred.
If the potatoes are to be served with a roast they may be browned with the meat. They should, however, never be put into the pan raw, as they are sure to turn dark and ugly if not boiled first.
2 cups boiled potatoes 2 eggs
2 tablespoons butter ½ cup scalded milk
Salt to taste
Use left-over mashed potatoes or potatoes freshly boiled and pressed through a vegetable press. Melt the butter; beat it into the potatoes; add the egg, beaten separately, then the hot milk and seasoning. Bake in one dish or in individual dishes until delicately browned.
1 pint chopped cooked potatoes
2 tablespoons cream ½ teaspoon salt
Dash of pepper
½ teaspoon chopped parsley
1 tablespoon butter
Melt the butter in a smooth frying pan and when hot add the other ingredients, well mixed together. Pack lightly into a layer of uniform thickness and cook slowly for twenty or thirty minutes. Fold over and serve. There should be a thick brown crust on the outside.
Cut boiled sweet potatoes into long slices; place them in an earthen dish; butter each and sprinkle with sugar. Bake until the sugar and butter have candied and the potatoes are brown.
Wash and cut small uncooked sweet potatoes into quarters; dry them and lower them into boiling hot fat. Brown thoroughly; remove with a skimmer; drain and dry on paper; sprinkle with salt and serve.
