    * 1 pt. mashed sweet potatoes
    * 1 tblsp. butter

    * 1 tblsp. sugar
    * 1 egg white
    * bread crumbs

Mash sweet potatoes very fine and add salt, sugar and melted butter. Shape into croquette rolls or patties and chill in the refrigerator for a half hour. Then roll in bread crumbs, dip in the egg white, slightly beaten, and in the crumbs again. Bake in a shallow, greased baking dish for 20 minutes, in hot oven (400 degrees F.). For a modern variation of this old recipe, place a marshmallow in the center of each with the potato mixture coating it completely.
