Stewed Sausage


  • 1 1/2 pounds of sausages
  • about 1/2 loaf of stale bread sliced
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1 tablespoonful of flour
  • 1 chopped pickle


Prick the sausages, (cost eighteen cents,) lay them in hot water for three minutes, roll them in flour, put them in a hot frying pan, and fry them brown; take them up and fry the bread in the same pan; put this on a platter, lay the sausages on it, and pour over them a gravy made as follows; after taking up the sausages, pour into the pan half a pint of boiling water, season it to taste with salt and pepper, thicken it with the flour mixed smooth in half a cupful of cold water, add to it the pickle, boil it up, and pour it over the sausages and bread. The seasoning and flour will cost two cents, the bread three, and the whole dish about twenty-three cents. If you serve it with a quart of plain boiled potatoes it will cost twenty-five or twenty-six cents.
