Recipe: Long Island Deep Sea Pie

Grease a deep baking dish and then sprinkle with fine bread crumbs. Now place a layer of finely diced potatoes in the bottom of the dish. Next a layer of cooked FISH, cut into pieces the size of a walnut. Next a layer of sliced onions; then a layer[pg 175]of sliced tomatoes; repeat, making two layers. Season each layer with salt, pepper and finely minced parsley. Now prepare a Sauce as follows:

  • One and one-half cups of milk in a Saucepan,
  • Six level tablespoons of flour.
  • Stir until the flour is dissolved and then bring to a boil. Remove from the fire and add
  • Two tablespoons of Worcestershire Sauce,
  • One well-beaten egg.

Pour over the prepared pie. Place a crust on top, making three or four gashes in it to permit the steam to escape. Bake in slow oven one hour.
