Lobster, 1, medium (2 pounds),
Dry bread-crumbs (rolled fine), 4 tablespoons,
Milk, 1 cupful,
Butter, 2 tablespoons,
Salt and Cayenne pepper.
Boil the lobster, and pick the meat up fine. Dry the breadcrumbs in the oven and roll them fine. Put the lobster in a stewpan, add to it 1 tablespoon of the bread-crumbs, and mix well together, and season highly with salt and Cayenne pepper. Add to this the butter, and the remaining 3 tablespoons of bread-crumbs mixed with the milk.
Put all on the fire; cook for about 5 minutes, constantly stirring, and serve in patty shells.
