A while back, The Cook and Kitchen Staff prepared an Irish Cookbook for the members of a family who were interested in their Irish heritage. You can find some of our past recipes offered here: Patrick's Day this year.
With freshly cleaned hands, form about two- tablespoon size portions into small flat, round cakes. Dip the cakes into the beaten egg, then into the bread crumbs, and fry in a large skillet of hot oil until brown on both sides. Estimate about 3 to 5 minutes frying time on both sides. Serve warm and wait for the compliments to come your way. Don't worry about leftovers, there usually isn't a morsel remaining.
