Take 1 lb. each of fresh beef and pork

Take 1 lb. each of fresh beef and pork; chop the meat very fine, and mix well together. Season with one teaspoonful of pepper, a tablespoonful of salt, a small onion minced very fine, a leaf or two of minced thyme, and if liked a grate of nutmeg: then add 4 raw egg yolks and half a pint of sifted breadcrumbs. Form the mixture into a round loaf, place it into a well-buttered pan; baste the meat very frequently while cooking, and when it is a rich brown color serve with red current jelly. Half the quantity indicated would make a mould large enough for four moderate eaters.
