Mincemeat Fritters

7 to 8 minutes.


  • Mincemeat, ½ lb.
  • bread-crumbs, 2 oz. (or flour, 1 tablespoonful)
  • eggs, 2
  • juice of ½ lemon


With half a pound of mincemeat mix two ounces of fine bread-crumbs (or a tablespoonful of flour), two eggs well beaten, and the strained juice of half a small lemon. Mix these well, and drop the fritters with a dessertspoon into plenty of very pure lard or fresh butter; fry them from seven to eight minutes, drain them on a napkin or on white blotting paper, and send them very hot to table: they should be quite small.
