Home on the Grange: Mock Sausage

Posted Sep 9 2016, 1:16 pm


This a World War I mock sausage recipe. It doesn’t use limas, but I think it would look similar.

It’s Friday so it’s time to go Home on the Grange with a recipe from my 1950 edition of the Pennsylvania State Grange Cook Book. This week I just couldn’t resist this one:

Mock Sausage

1 cup dried lima beans or 3 cups cooked lima beans
2/3 cup bread crumbs
2 eggs
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 tablespoon sage

Pick over and wash beans, cover with water and let soak over night. Drain, cook in boiling salted water until tender.* Drain off all liquid. Force through a strainer. Add remaining ingredients. Shape into form of sausages. Saute in a small amount of fat.

*Soaking and cooking instructions are for dried beans.
