Recipe submitted by Ella Hanlon to "NANTUCKET ISLAND COOK BOOK", which was printed to help finance THE OLD PEOPLES' HOME,Nantucket, Mass.
This O.P.H. Association raised what seemed a sufficient Fund to purchase a home which subsequently "set going" with four guests on July 16, 1930 and has continued to fulfill its responsibility to those who have intrusted themselves to our care.

How to Make From a Nantucket cook-CONVENT PIE

Step-by-Step

  • 1Original recipe was not printed in the same order: But separate yolks from egg whites, and beat egg whites until stiff.
  • 2Preheat the oven "to a moderate temperature"; this would be 350 degrees I think!
  • 3Cooked spaghetti is called for, so if you have leftover spaghetti great, otherwise cook a small portion.
  • 4Scald one cup milk.
  • 5Mix together cooked spaghetti, bread, butter and cheese. Pour hot milk over this and add pimento, onion juice and slightly beaten egg yolks. Fold in carefully beaten egg whites and bake in moderate oven 45 minutes.
