Sausage-Meat Cakes


To every pound of lean pork, add

  • 3/4 pound of fat bacon
  • 1/4 ounce of salt
  • 1 saltspoonful of pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoonful of grated nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoonful of minced parsley


Remove from the pork all skin, gristle, and bone, and chop it finely with the bacon; add the remaining ingredients, and carefully mix altogether. Pound it well in a mortar, make it into convenient-sized cakes, flour these, and fry them a nice brown for about 10 minutes. This is a very simple method of making sausage-meat, and on trial will prove very good, its great recommendation being, that it is so easily made.

Time: 10 minutes.

Seasonable from September to March.
