This is a good spring dish--dumpling
-like yummies. Make this with a dinner for several people to sit down to--it's too much for one person! Best to use for celebrations up to the summer solstice, but not after.
Heat 3 quarts of water and 1 tablespoon of salt in large pan. Mix flour, egg, salt, milk, and oil until sticky dough emerges. Roll out dough on floured board ¼ inch thick. Cut into circles. Combine cheese, mashed potatoes. Fill centers of dough circles with filling, 1-2 tablespoons. Wet edges of dough, fold in half. Pinch together to seal. Drop into simmering water; cook for 10 minutes. Remove and drain, then fry in butter until brown.
Note: Incidentally, after having made this dish a couple times, I've noticed the suggested amount of flour is far too little; I suggest you use the prescribed amount and then add flour until you get a dough you can conceivably wrap around a blob of cheesy potatoes.
