Chop lobster meat, moisten with salad dressing, season with salt, pepper, and anchovy, and spread on buttered rolls, or between slices of buttered bread. Sprinkle over with gherkins or olives. If liked, one chopped, hard-cooked egg may be added to mixture.
1 cup (4 ozs.) chopped nut meats
1/2 cup (1 gill) vinegar
1 egg, beaten
1 cup (1/2 pt.) thick sour cream
1/4 cup (2 ozs.) sugar or honey
1/4 teaspoon salt
White or Graham bread
Crisp lettuce leaves
Bring vinegar to boiling point. Mix egg with sour cream, add sugar (or honey) and salt, and pour into hot vinegar. Stir until it reaches boiling point, remove from fire, and cool; then add strained lemon juice and pour over nuts. This filling is better if allowed to stand several hours before using. Spread between slices of buttered bread. A lettuce leaf may be placed between slices if desired.
Loaves bread Softened butter
To make Rolled Sandwiches, cut bread in thin slices, having first shaved off all the crust from loaf. Pack slices one on another, and wrap in wet table napkin and leave one hour. Brush each slice of bread with softened butter, then roll and wrap firmly in waxed paper. Set rolls of paper in refrigerator and just before serving remove papers. The sandwiches will retain their rolled-up shape.
Rolled Celery Sandwiches are delicious. Take loaf of fresh bread, cut off crusts, and spread before slicing with creamed butter; dust with salt and pepper, and roll tightly around three small stalks of celery. The celery should be crisp and tender and cut in small strips of suitable length and dusted with fine salt while damp.
