FRIED TOMATOES WITH CREAM SAUCECut large, solid, ripe tomatoes in half-inch slices; one ordinary
tomato makes 3 slices. Dredge thickly with flour. Fry several slices
of bacon in an iron pan, take bacon from pan when fried and put in
warming oven. Lay the well-floured slices of tomatoes in hot bacon fat
and one tablespoon of butter and fry brown on both sides. Serve on hot
platter with bacon. Or fry slices of well floured tomato in pan
containing just enough butter and drippings to keep them from sticking
to the bottom of pan, over a hot fire. Fry quickly, browning on each
side. Season with salt and pepper. If the tomatoes are very sour,
sprinkle a _very little_ sugar over them before frying. When brown,
lift the tomatoes carefully from pan and place in a circle around the
inside edge of a warm chop plate, add a lump of butter to the pan and
a small half cup of sweet milk. Let come to a boil, thicken with a
little flour mixed smoothly with a little cold milk, and cook until
the consistency of thick cream. Season with salt and pour in centre of
chop plate, surrounded with fried slices of tomatoes. Dust pepper over
top and serve hot.
This is a delicious way of serving tomatoes. Or slices of the fried
tomatoes may be served on slices of crisply toasted bread over which
place a couple tablespoons of the cream dressing.
COMMON "CREAM SAUCE"Young housekeepers will be surprised to learn of the various
attractive, appetizing dishes which may be prepared by combining them
with a "cream sauce." After cooking vegetables until tender in salted
water, they should be drained and served with a cream sauce poured
over. The art of making a smooth, creamy sauce of the proper
consistency is easily acquired. A good rule for "common cream sauce"
is 1 cup of milk, water, or meat broth, thickened with 1 tablespoonful
to 1-1/2 tablespoonfuls of flour, or a combination of flour and
cornstarch. Mix flour, or cornstarch, with a small quantity of cold
milk or water, to a smooth paste, before adding it to liquid; add,
usually, one tablespoonful of butter. Place the mixture in a saucepan
and cook until the consistency of cream, add 1/2 teaspoonful of salt
just before removing from the fire, and dust pepper over when serving.
When mixing gravy to serve with roast beef or veal, omit butter. For a
thick sauce use either 2 or 3 tablespoonfuls of flour and the same
amount of butter. This thick sauce may be used to mix with meat for
croquettes in the proportion of 1 cup of sauce to 2 cups of chopped
cold roast lamb, beef, veal or chicken. Should a richer sauce be
desired, add 1 or more yolks of eggs to the cream sauce. Some of the
numerous dishes which might be served by the young housewife to vary
the daily bill of fare by the addition of "cream sauce," are: Small,
new potatoes, cauliflower, onions, cabbage asparagus tips, thinly
sliced carrots, celery, mushrooms, fish, oysters, chicken, veal and
sweetbreads. All of these, when coked, may be served on slices of
toasted bread, or served in Pattie-cases, with cream sauce, or served
simply with cream sauce.
EGGS IN CREAM SAUCEFour eggs, boiled hard, cut in halves lengthwise, then across, each
egg cut in four pieces. A cream sauce was made using 1/2 cups sweet
milk, 1-1/2 tablespoons flour, 1 generous tablespoon of butter,
seasoned with salt. After letting milk come to a boil and adding flour
mixed smoothly with a little cold milk or water, add butter and cook
until a thick creamy consistency, then add the quartered eggs to
sauce. Stand a few minutes until heated through. Pour the creamed eggs
over four or five slices of nicely-toasted bread. Sprinkle a little
finely-chopped parsley and a pinch of pepper over top and serve at
once. This is a delicious and quickly prepared luncheon dish.
A very wholesome and digestible way to prepare an egg is to put yolk
and white of a fresh egg together in a bowl, beat lightly, pour over
the egg a pint of rich milk, which has been heated to the boiling
point. Add a pinch of salt. Stir constantly while slowly adding the
milk. The hot milk should slightly cook the egg. Eat slowly with
crackers or toasted bread.
