LOBSTER PUDDING (1875)

Breakfast, Luncheon and Tea
By Marion Harland [Mary Virginia Terhune] (1875)

 

LOBSTER PUDDING INGREDIENTS

• 1 large lobster well boiled, or a can of preserved lobster.
• 1/2 cup fine bread-crumbs.
• 1/2 cup cream or rich milk.
• Cayenne pepper and salt.
• 1 teaspoonful of Worcestershire or Harvey's sauce.
• 1/4 pound fat, salt pork, or corned ham, cut into very thin slices.
• 3 eggs.
 

DIRECTIONS

Pound the meat and coral to a paste.

Mix into this two eggs well beaten, the seasonings the bread-crumbs, and one table-spoonful of cream.

Stir all together until light.

Line the pudding-mould with the sliced ham.

Pour the mixture into this and fit on the top.

Set into a pot or pan of boiling water, and boil steadily for one hour.
 

Sauce for Pudding.

    • 1/2 cup drawn butter.
    • The remainder of the cream.
    • A little chopped parsley.
    • 1 teaspoonful anchovy sauce.

Heat almost to boiling; stir in a beaten egg, and so soon as this begins to thicken, take from the fire.

Turn the pudding out carefully upon a hot dish, and pour the sauce over it.

Cut with a sharp thin knife.

Send around lemon cut into eighths, to be squeezed over each slice, should the guests wish to do so.
