I started drooling over this recipe when I looked at the pictures…then I saw that it was named after a woman named Mabel. If something is named after a woman named Mabel it has to be good, right? Maybe not good for you. But good nonetheless.
12 small potatoes
1/2 c. flour
salt, parsley, maybe garlic powder to taste, just keep it in proportion to the flour.
lard or oil
Boil potatoes till the skin just starts splitting. About 10 minutes or so. The potatoes do not need to be cooked thoroughly in the boil.
Take from the stove, drain and cool in cold water.
Gently peel the skin of the potatoes off.
Mix the flour and seasonings and roll the potatoes one by one very gently.
Heat 2 inches of oil in a pot to deep frying stage (325 degrees).
Drop the potatoes in very gently or lower them in with a spoon.
When one side is browned, turn to the other side.
Drain on towel and serve warm.
These are great with Cheeseburgers, Sloppy Joes, etc. Above they are photographed with Ranch Dressing.
