Stuffed Fillets of Flounders

Take fillets from a flounder weighing 2½ lbs., season with salt and pepper, and a few drops of onion juice, if desired. Spread on one half of each fillet a tablespoonful of mashed potato (about 1 cup should be prepared) mixed with the beaten yolk of an egg, and seasoned with 1 tablespoonful of butter, ¼ of a teaspoonful of salt and a dash of pepper. Fold the other half of each fillet over the potato, cover with crumbs, dip in the white of egg beaten with 2 tablespoonfuls of water, and again cover with crumbs and fry in deep fat. Drain on soft paper, then insert a short piece of macaroni in the pointed end of each fillet and cover this with a paper frill. Garnish and serve with tomato sauce.—Janet M. Hill, in "Boston Cooking School Magazine."
