Egg Pone ~1847

Recipe for Egg Pone.

Another no-frills recipe from: Cheap receipts and hints on cookery; collected for distribution amongst the Irish peasantry in 1847. As a reminder to our readers, the Irish potato famine occurred between 1845-1852. 

The book is filled with recipes using cornmeal and rice. ZERO -0- recipes using potatoes.

Egg pone is a straight-forward, 4 ingredient recipe:

  • Eggs
  • Cornmeal
  • Milk
  • Salt

No doubt edible. Probably not half-bad if served with jam.
