Savoury Squirrel Bakes 1 lb potatoes, boiled and mashed 4 oz grated Cheddar cheese 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter 1 Tablespoon chopped chives Salt and pepper to taste 2 Tablespoons flour 1 egg, beaten 1 cup breadcrumbs Preheat oven to 375*. In a bowl, beat the potatoes with the cheese, butter, chives, salt and pepper until smooth. If the dough is too loose to handle, stir in flour to make a firm dough. Turn the dough onto a floured board and form it into a 2-inch thick log. Cut the log into 1-inch slices and shape the slices into balls. Set up a bowl with the egg and another bowl with the breadcrumbs. Coat each ball of dough in egg, then breadcrumbs, then place it on a baking sheet. Bake until browned, about 20 minutes (alternately, fry the cakes over medium heat in 1/2 inch of vegetable oil until browned on all sides, about 5 minutes.) We decided rolliing out a log was too much effort, so we just scooped teaspoons of dough and rolled them into balls. We didn't have breadcrumbs, so we used quick oats instead. We skipped the salt and pepper in process and used it on the finished product. Tasty, but basically just mashed potatoes with cheddar cheese and chives. This is way too much effort for a feast dish, but it might be fun to make with small children.
