UPDATED TO ADD RECIPE SCAN
My scanner isn’t cooperating, so I hope you’ll forgive the absence of a recipe card. This recipe was torn from a magazine and the name of it was torn off, so that all that’s left is “smoked.” There’s another word there but only the bottoms of the letters. :-) In the instructions, it does say “soak fish” so this is some sort of fish recipe.
1 to 1 1/2 pounds smoked fillets
2 cups milk
1 bay leaf
1/2 teaspoon whole black pepper
1 slice onion
Few celery leaves
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons flour
2 hard-cooked eggs
Soak fish 1 hour in milk; add seasonings and simmer 20 minutes; remove fish; cool and flake. Melt butter; blend in flour and strained milk; cook, stirring constantly, until thickened. Add fish and chopped egg whites; season to taste; heat and serve on toast. Garnish with sieved egg yolks. 4 to 6 servings.
I just checked Fannie Farmer. This recipe looks to be something like Finnen Haddie (smoked haddock). Gram didn’t serve this very much, if at all, but somehow when I read this it seemed to say Finnen Haddie — smoked fish in a sauce served over toast points or mashed potato.
