Lobster, 1,

Eggs, 2,

Melted butter, 2 tablespoons,


Pulverized cracker, mace,

Salt and pepper,

Parsley for garnish.

Boil the lobster. Chop up the meat, and add pepper, salt, and powdered mace. Use about one-fourth as much breadcrumbs as you have lobster meat. Mix all the ingredients together, and form into pear-shaped balls. Roll these in the beaten egg, then in the cracker-crumbs, and fry in butter, first removing the hot-water pan.

Lift out, and serve immediately, using parsley to garnish.
