Social History

Mrs R. Phillips, of 3 Curzon st, North Melbourne, sent in this recipe for a party dish:

CHICKEN ROLLS

1/4lb cooked chicken.

2oz cooked ham.

6 rashers bacon

2 mushrooms (if procurable).

1 gill white sauce.

1 yolk egg.

Salt and pepper.

Little good dripping.

Batter.

Chop the chicken, ham, and mushrooms and add them to the white sauce along with the seasoning and the yolk of egg. When the mixture is quite hot lift from the stove to cool, then form into small rolls. Wrap each roll in a thin slice of bacon, dip in batter, and fry to a rich golden brown. Drain and pile on a dish covered with a paper napkin.
