|Melted butter/Margarine||2 Tablespoon|
|Fine dry crumbs||1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)|
|Fat||2 Cup (32 tbs) (For Frying)|
1. Set a heavy frying kettle on a warm part of the range. Fill it half full of fat and let it slowly heat at 390° F., or hot enough to brown a 1-inch cube of bread in 30 to 40 seconds.
2. Mix potatoes, salt, melted butter or margarine and cayenne. Press into a croquette shape.
3. Beat egg yolks and add 2 tablespoons milk. Dip croquettes into crumbs, then into egg, then into crumbs again.
4. Fry in deep fat until browned. A frying basket will help to keep the croquettes in shape. Drain on paper towels.
