    Default Egg Balls

    I've been trying some new recipes from a really old cookbook (new to me
    anyway) and I liked this a lot.

    2 hard boiled eggs
    1 raw egg
    4 TBS of crumbs (from whatever source you like) I used a slice of flax bread
    that I crumbed in the Cuisinart.
    1/2 tsp salt
    dash of cayenne
    a little grated nutmeg (optional)
    a few drops of lemon juice.

    Mince the hard boiled eggs very fine (I used a fine plane grater) mix well,
    add the seasoning and 2 TBS of the crumbs. Stir all together with enough of
    the beaten raw egg to bind. Form into balls about 3/4 inch in diameter. Roll
    these in the leftover raw egg, and then roll into the other 2TBS of crumbs
    to coat. Let sit uncovered in fridge for 15 or so minutes. Drop into boiling
    stock ( I used a can of chicken stock with some chopped up green beans in
    it) and cook until firm, about 5 minutes. They were tasty and filling.

    I foudn a great way to finly shop egg back in the days of the hochmesse
    adn wooden bowl for chopped liver. I could never get the eggs chopped
    finely enough to not "show" as bits of white or yello inthe chopped liver.
    I took a small strainer(not the REALLY fin coffee one) and pushed the eggs
    through twice and it worked beautifully.

    I still have the hochmesser, but no longer have than wooden chopping
    bowl, the mainstay of theold fashioned kitchen-chopped liver, chopped
    herring, gefilte fish all were laboriously chopped in those wooden bolws.

    You know, I have never, ever heard of anthing remotely like that. It
    almost sounds like a way to stretch even the most humble protein in
    times of scarcity... is it a regional cookbook? From what era, and what
    area?

    Sounds really interesting.

    It's a book by Beatriz-Maria Prada, and it does mention stretching meals to
    make enough for everybody to have something. This recipe is from 1904, and
    recipes from all over and even from the 1800's. I'm doing the pressed
    chicken next (or chicken in jelly) by using chicken parts covered in a small
    amount of water that you cook, bone the meat and then reduce the stock to
    almost nothing. Remove fat and refrigerate til it gels. It's like a meat
    aspic I'm sure. :-)

    Really interesting; the two sound like means to maximize the protein
    density of humble foods... increase nutrition at the lowest possible
    cost. By cooking stock down to jelly, you're concentrating the proteins
    from collagen to surround the meat, too.
