Ingredients

  • 1 large potato (about 1 lb.), baked
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour

  • In a bowl, lightly toss the flour and salt with the riced potatoes.
  • Make a well in the center of the potato mixture and put the egg in it. Gradually incorporate the potato mixture into the egg to make a dough that comes together. Roll dough into 1-inch-thick logs, and cut 1-inch pieces off the logs.
