6 medium-sized - potatoes

1 oz - butter

up to ½ cup - milk

2 - eggs

  - salt and pepper

  - ready made breadcrumbs

1 clove - garlic

  1. Peel the potatoes and follow the recipe for creamed potatoes. Beat the eggs and add about ¾ of the mixture to the potatoes. Season liberally with salt and freshly-ground pepper then stir into a smooth paste. Form the potato into sausage-shaped portions about 1 ½" (4cm) long and about ¾" (2cm) in diameter. Brush these with the remaining egg mixture and roll them in a saucer of breadcrumbs to coat the outside.
  2. Crush (mince) the garlic, place it in a frying pan with about ½" (1cm) of oil and fry the croquettes until they are crisp and golden-brown. Serve hot.
