Mock Whitebait Fritters

With reference to an old Edmonds Cookery Book, these are the predecessors to hash browns.


1 egg

2½ tb flour

2 tb milk

2 tb grated cheese

salt and pepper

1 medium raw potato, grated

1 tsp Edmonds baking powder


  1. Beat the egg, add the flour, milk, cheese, s & p.
  2. Add the grated potato and baking powder just before cooking.
  3. Don't fry in shallow fat; spray the non-stick pan and cook them when it is hot, turning over when brown or when the tiny bubbles on top pop.
