Potato Casserole Recipe
Peel and boil some good mealy potatoes, mash, them with a small bit of
salt, butter, cream, and the yolk of 1 egg to every pint of potatoes.
Beat them two or three minutes over the stove to dry them thoroughly,
after that place them on a shallow dish, and work them with the hands
into the shape of a raised pie. Leave a hollow in the middle, decorate
it with flutings, etc., brush it over with beaten egg, and brown
it in a quick oven. Fill the inside with a ragout or mince, and
serve your potato casserole hot.
