1 pint bread-crumbs

1 pint mixed nuts

1 pint boiled rice

6 hard-boiled eggs

3 raw eggs

1 tablespoonful grated onion

1 tablespoonful salt

1 saltspoonful pepper

Put the bread-crumbs in a saucepan with a pint of water; cook for a few minutes; add the hard-boiled eggs, chopped; take saucepan from the fire and add the nuts (a mixture of peanuts and pine nuts is best), and the rice. When this is well mixed, add the raw eggs, slightly beaten. Form this into the shape of a turkey, reserving a portion for the legs and the wings. Take a tablespoonful of the mixture in your hand and press it into the shape of a leg; put a piece of dry macaroni into it for the bone and fasten it to the turkey. Do the other side the same. Form the remaining portion into small pieces looking like wings tucked under; press them to the side of the turkey. Brush the turkey with butter and bake for one hour. Serve with cranberry sauce.

Mock Goose

Make precisely the same as mock turkey, using black walnuts in the place of the other nuts. Serve with gooseberry jam.

Mock Duck

Make same as mock goose, adding to the mixture a half pint of finely chopped celery. Serve with apple sauce.
