Mrs. De Graf’s Bread Lamb Chops
Take shoulder chops, trim and season with salt and pepper; beat an egg and add one tablespoon of cold water. Dip the chops in fine, dry bread crumbs then in the beaten egg and again in crumbs. Fry in deep fat about eight minutes, drain on brown paper. Heat fat for frying until a cube of bread will turn a golden brown in ninety seconds. Serve chops around a mount of mashed potatoes. Either a brown or tomato sauce should be served with the chops.

Stand one tomato on each chop and bake in hot oven twenty to thirty minutes.
