Calf's Head Pudding

  • Calf's head
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 4 eggs, well beaten
  • 1 small lemon or pickle
  • 1 onion (optional)
  • Pepper
  • Salt
  • Bread crumbs
Skin the head and take out the brains. Thoroughly wash the head and then soak it for one night to extract the blood.

Put the head in cold water and boil for 5-6 hours or until the bones are ready to drop out. Pick it very fine, taking all the bones out. Add the liquor in which it was boiled, butter, beaten eggs, lemon or pickle, onion, if your little heart desires, pepper and salt.

Lay the brains all over the top and bake. Sprinkle some bread crumbs over.

*The liquor, seasoned, makes excellent soup.
