No. 3. Superior Suet Forcemeat, for Veal, Turkeys, &c

Fried in balls, 7 to 8 minutes, or poached, 6 to 7.


  • Beef suet finely minced, 6 oz.
  • bread-crumbs, 6 oz.
  • parsley, mixed with little thyme, 1 large dessertspoonful
  • salt, 1 teaspoonfukl
  • mace, large saltspoonful, and one fourth as much cayenne
  • unbeaten egg-yolks, 3
  • milk, 3 teaspoonsful: well pounded.


Mix well together six ounces of fine stale crumbs, with an equal weight of beef-kidney suet, chopped extremely small, a large dessertspoonful of parsley, mixed with a little lemon-thyme, a teaspoonful of salt, a quarter one of cayenne, and a saltspoonful or rather more of mace and nutmeg together; work these up with three unbeaten egg-yolks, and three teaspoonsful of milk; then put the forcemeat into a large mortar, and pound it perfectly smooth. Take it out, and let it remain in a cool place for half an hour at least before it is used; then roll it into balls, if it be wanted to serve in that form; flour and fry them gently from seven to eight minutes, and dry them well before they are dished.

Obs.โ€”The finely grated rind of half a lemon can be added to this forcemeat at pleasure; and for some purposes a morsel of garlic, or three or four minced eschalots, may be mixed with it before it is put into the mortar.
