Christmas is a fun time of year…with New Year right behind! Each family celebrates the season with their own reason. I do not take offense of anyone’s personal holidays as long as they do not try to make me bow down to their personal beliefs. I do not understand in a free country why there are so many wanting to do away with this season. They must have a mean burr under their saddle.


German Sandwiches

Grandma Straub

3/4 lb. ground pork

1/4 lb. ground beef

1 egg

1 onion, chopped fine

1 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. pepper

Add enough water to make it soft, mix well, and prepare blankets for sandwiches.

1 tbsp. sugar

1 tsp. salt

2 eggs

1+ tbsp. thick sour cream, heaped in spoon

1 1/2 c. sweet milk

3 c. sifted flour

1 heaping tsp. baking powder

3 dashes nutmeg

Mix into dough, adding flour as needed to keep it from being sticky. Roll out on floured board until as thin as possible (about 1/8th inch), adding flour as needed. With a sharp knife cut into squares about 4 to 6 inches square. Add pork mixture (about a tablespoon or so), fold dough over and pinch down the edges solidly to seal it in. Fry in deep fat (French Fryer), turn constantly. It is done when the blankets are golden brown.
