Small meat puddings covered in almonds - contributed by Becky Hoover
  • 1 pounds ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons bread crumbs
  • ½ teaspoon ginger
  • ½ teaspoon mace
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon softened butter
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 4 tablespoons water
  • 2 ounces slivered almonds
Mix the ground beef, breadcrumbs, spices, seasonings, and softened butter. Bind with the beaten egg yolks and form a ball.  Place in a buttered pan. Cook covered for one hour, basting at intervals with the rest of the butter melted in the water.  Stick the slivered almonds all over the pudding, so that they look like the quills of a hedgehog or sea urchin.
