  • Bread-crumbs, 4 oz.
  • Lean of ham, 2 oz.
  • butter, 2 oz.
  • minced herbs, 1 dessertspoonful
  • lemon-grate, 1 teaspoonful
  • nutmeg, mace, and cayenne, together, 1 small teaspoonful
  • little salt
  • 1 whole egg, or yolks of 2.


Add to four ounces of bread-crumbs two of the lean of a boiled ham, quite free from sinew, and very finely minced; two of good butter, a dessertspoonful of herbs, chopped small, some lemon-grate, nutmeg, a little salt, a good seasoning of pepper or cayenne and one whole egg, or the yolks of two. This may be fried in balls of moderate size, for five minutes, to server with roast veal, or it may be put into the joint in the usual way.
