4 medium potatoes
1 c. flour
1t. salt
1c. milk (soy milk works) or yogurt

Grate two of the potatoes and squeeze the water from them by hand.
Boil the other two potatoes and mash them.

Mix all of the ingredients together until combined and bake in a greased casserole dish at 350 for about forty minutes or until done.

You can add onions.

Combine diced, boiled potatoes and lightly blanched, diced cabbage in whatever proportions you like. I like more cabbage and I always end up throwing in some onions. Fry in a tablespoon or so of oil until tender.

Add the egg and butter milk and quickly and lightly knead till just incorporated
Bake at 425 degrees F. 40-45 minutes.

Tea Loaf
