Potato Scones With Cheese

1 pound boiled -- mashed potatoes
3 ounces flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons melted butter or bacon fat
2 well-beaten eggs
4 ounces grated cheese

Mash potatoes well, add melted fat and salt. Mix in eggs and cheese. Add as much flour as potatoes will take without becoming too dry.* Shape into little round cakes, dip in bread crumbs. Fry in 1/4-inch hot oil on both sides until golden. Makes 12 cakes.

* Flour amount varies with potato used; the floury kind needs less than others. NOTES : Potato scones with cheese are good as a supper or picnic dish.
