Popular Sausage Crown Salad
Look at that! Is your mouth watering? No, mine neither. I was hunting through my old craft mags looking for a lace knitting pattern to turn into a steampunky choker, and while I didn't find that, I did find this and just had to share it. Something fluffy after yesterday's seriousness. Pins and Needles from May 1967 has a page of recipes for high teas (and we all know what a high tea is, don't we?) and pride of place goes to the Popular Sausage Crown Salad. A dish so popular, I'd be amazed if anyone's ever eaten it... I labelled my scan 'SausageWTF', which seems a much more apt name.
Esentially, you put sauteed tomatoes and mushrooms in the centre of the dish, with halved sausages arranged around it – and it is important to have the cut sides facing outwards! – and finely chopped green pepper with seasoning and worcestershire sauce on top of the tomato mixture. On top of that goes a tasty layer of green beans, and then some tomatoes for decoration.
Mmm, is your mouth watering now? No, mine still isn't either. I do rather like that dish, though.
If you have seen this and want MOAR FOOD, may I recommend the Gallery of Regrettable Food, a site devoted to vintage culinary horrors. The jelly (Jell-O) images are particularly horrifying. I may have more vintage food treats to come. Some of them will even be edible.
